The shocking, heart-breaking - and often very funny - true story behind Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. In 1985 Jeanette Winterson's first novel, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, was published. It was Jeanette's version of the story of a terraced house in Accrington, an adopted child, and the thwarted giantess Mrs Winterson.

It was a cover story, a painful past written over and repainted. It was a story of survival. This book is that story's the silent twin.

It is full of hurt and humour and a fierce love of life. It is about the pursuit of happiness, about lessons in love, the search for a mother and a journey into madness and out again. It is generous, honest and true.

'Unforgettable... It's the best book I have ever read about the cost of growing up' Daisy Goodwin, Sunday Times**ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE 21st CENTURY**
