Winterson's bold and revelatory novels have earned her widespread acclaim, establishing her as a major figure in world literature. It is a book full of stories about 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.
Born in Manchester in 1959 and adopted into a firmly religious family, Jeanette Winterson put herself through higher education and studied at Oxford University. She is the author of numerous novels, including "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit," "Sexing the Cherry," and "The Passion." Winterson lives in Gloucestershire, UK.

""Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?" is raucous. It hums with a dark refulgence from its first pages. . . . Singular and electric . . . [Winterson's] life with her adoptive parents was often appalling, but it made her the writer she is."--"The New York Times"
"She's one of the most daring and inventive writers of our time--searingly honest yet effortlessly lithe as she slides between forms, exuberant and unerring, demanding emotional and intellectual expansion of herself and of us. . . She explores not only the structure of storytelling byt the interplay of past, present, and future, blending science fiction, realism, and a deep love of literature and history. . . . In "Why Be Happy," [Winterson's] emotional life is laid bare. [Her] struggle to first accept and then love herself yields a bravely frank narrative of truly coming undone. For someone in love with disguises, Winterson's openness is all the more moving; there's nothing left to hide, and nothing left to hide behind."--A.M. Homes, "Elle"
"To read Jeanette Winterson is to love her. . . . The fierce, curious, brilliant British writer is winningly candid in "Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?" . . . [Winterson has] such a joy for life and love and language that she quickly becomes her very own one-woman band--one that, luckily for us, keeps playing on."--"O, the Oprah Magazine"
"Magnificent . . . What begins as a tragicomic tale of triumph over a soul-destroying childhood becomes something rougher and richer in the later passages. . . . Winterson writes with heartrending precision. . . . Ferociously funny and unfathomably generous, Winterson's exorcism-in-writing is an unforgettable quest for belonging, a tour de force of literature and love."--"Vogue"
"A memoir as unconventional and winning as ["Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit"], the rollicking bildungsroman . . . that instantly established [Winterson's] distinctive voice. . . . It's a testament to Winterson's innate genero
