Jeanette Winterson is one of Britain finest living writers, a canonical author and a perfect pick for Hogarth’s ambitious new venture, the “great rewriting project of the 21st Century”, in which the works of Shakespeare are retold by our finest writers!
In her new work Jeanette Winterson has taken the Bard’s The Winter’s Tale and magisterially bound it up to create The Gap of Time.
Taking us from a London still reeling from the crash, across the Atlantic to fictional storm-ravaged American city New Bohemia, the author of Oranges are not the Only Fruit has conjured a tale of friendship, jealousy, video games and the elliptical nature of time.
Jeanette’s writing has won the Whitbread Award for Best First Novel, the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize, the E. M. Forster Award and the Prix d’argent at Cannes Film Festival, she is an extraordinary author and a fabulous speaker!
