ART OBJECTS: ESSAYS ON ECSTASY AND EFFRONTERY – Buy it here
These interlocking essays uncover art as an active force in the world – neither elitist or remote, present to those who want it, affecting even those who don’t. Winterson’s own passionate vision of art is presented here – provocatively and personally in pieces on Modernism, autobiography, style, painting, the future of fiction, in two essays on Virginia Woolf, and more intimately in pieces where she describes her relationship to her work and the books that she loves.
‘Flashes of sly wit have an epigrammatic power… On Joyce, Woolf, Conrad, Dickens and the development of English literature she is acute and always interesting..covetable, infuriating, stimulating’
