Signed copy of Winterson's Written on the Body (1992)


Written on the Body

Published: London: Jonathan Cape

Date: 1992

First edition. 8vo, pp. 190. Bright black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Signature, in green, to title page: 'Jeanette Winterson/ 19/10/92' - the date of a book signing? Slight lean to spine. A near fine copy in a near fine, Mylar-protected DJ. Critically contentious, especially in the UK, Winterson's fourth novel was the one to make her name internationally. An experimental love story that investigates the terrain of gender and the body, ‘This book is a deep sensual plunge, a worship of the body, inside and out’ The Guardian.
