    An anthology of opera-inspired stories by some of the most acclaimed writers of modern fiction includes new work by Kate Atkinson, Alexander McCall Smith, Ruth Rendell, Anne Enright, and many more Jeanette Winterson's request of many of her best-loved contemporaries was that they "choose an opera, and from its music or its characters, its plot or its libretto, or even a mood evoked, write a story." This specially commissioned collection of comedies, tragedies, and tales of love won or lost is contemporary fiction at its very finest, a book as broad in content as it is deep in atmosphere. The characters are from all walks of life, all parts of the world, and are driven by all motivations. All the stories are rich with emotion and written to inspire. Written for lovers of fiction and opera alike, this anthology includes notes explaining on which opera each story is based, with a brief synopsis and a history of where and when it was first performed. The inside front and back covers feature brand new opera-themed illustrations from Posy Simmonds, the cartoonist whose work includes Gemma Bovary and Tamara Drewe.

    • Published: March 2012
    This memoir is the chronicle of a life’s work to find happiness. It is 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 (matt for everyday and a pearlized set for ‘best’) and a revolver in the dresser drawer; about growing up in a north England industrial town in the 1960s and 1970s; and about the universe as a cosmic dustbin. It is the story of how a painful past, which Winterson thought she had written over and repainted, rose to haunt her later in life, sending her on a journey into madness and out again, in search of her biological mother. It is also a book about literature, one that shows how fiction and poetry can guide us when we are lost. 230p.
