Jeanette Winterson’s novels have establishing her as a major figure in world literature. She has written some of the most admired books of the past few decades, including her internationally bestselling first novel, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, the story of a young girl adopted by Pentecostal parents that is now often required reading in contemporary fiction. Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? is a memoir about a life’s work to find happiness. It's a book full of stories: about a girl locked out of her home, sitting on the doorstep all night; about a religious zealot disguised as a mother who has two sets of false teeth and a revolver in the dresser, waiting for Armageddon; about growing up in an north England industrial town now changed beyond recognition; about the Universe as Cosmic Dustbin. It is the story of how a painful past that Jeanette thought she'd written over and repainted rose to haunt her, sending her on a journey into madness and out again, in search of her biological mother. Witty, acute, fierce, and celebratory, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? is a tough-minded search for belonging—for love, identity, home, and a mother.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar), course: Hauptseminar: Concepts of Britishness in British Cinema, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The drama Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit tells the story of a young lesbian girl, Jeanette/Jess, who is raised in a repressive Pentecostal home by an overpowering mother. Jess tries to find her sexual identity in the context of the fanatical Pentecostal church. Although Jess herself does not have any problems with her sexuality combined with her religiosity at all, she gets into a conflict with the Christian community and into a deep inner conflict because the church regards her sexuality as a sin and herself as possessed by demons. This paper discusses how the different conflicts in the story arise and which impact the film’s way of representing religion and lesbianism has on the viewer. It demonstrates how the ways in which the novel and the film version ofOrangespresent lesbianism work to naturalize and normalize it. By its representation of lesbian love and the church as its enemy Oranges challenges normative values and conventional standards.Oranges makes an attempt to reverse the viewer’s former attitudes towards these opponents.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, language: English, abstract: In terms of genre, Jeanette Winterson's 1985 novel Oranges are not the Only Fruit is definitely groundbreaking. The author uses autobiographical elements, elements of the female Bildungsroman but also of the typical coming out novel. Furthermore, besides many allusions to other literary works and an enormous use of intertextuality, Winterson constructs girlhood through fantasy, myth, and fairy tales which challenge the expectations about any conventional novel. As Paulina Palmer describes, in Oranges "Examples of realism, fantasy and anti-realism flourish side by side," co-exist and intermingle with each other (2). By mixing all these different genres in her novel, Jeanette Winterson destabilizes the possibility of a single authoritative reading of her fiction. Definitely intriguing is her use of fairy tales within Oranges. Because traditional fairy tales have often been subject of feminist criticism, it seems curious that especially Winterson, as a lesbian author, interweaves many, seemingly traditional fairy tales into her plot. After the 20th century suffrage and liberation movements, feminists such as K.E. Rowe argue that these "domestic fictions" have encouraged women throughout centuries to blindly await Prince Charming in order to fulfil their primary goal in life: marriage (237). These tales picture women as subdued to men, first to their fathers, then to their husbands, as dependent heroines who need to be rescued from the dangers the world bares. It is furthermore well known that "By virtue of the beautiful simplicity that folk tales have, by virtue of their single context, they become ideal vehicles for incorporating elements of the cultures which produce them" (Rabkin 100). Yet, I argue that the fairy-tale episodes in Oranges are not as traditiona
