Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit

Amazon.de
Jeanette, the protagonist of Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit and the author’s namesake, has issues–„unnatural“ ones: her adopted mam thinks she’s the Chosen one from God; she’s beginning to fancy girls; and an orange demon keeps popping into her psyche. Already Jeanette Winterson’s semi-autobiographical first novel is not your typical coming-of-age tale.

Brought up in a working-class Pentecostal family, up North, Jeanette follows the path her Mam has set for her. This involves Bible quizzes, a stint as a tambourine-playing Sally Army officer and a future as a missionary in Africa, or some other „heathen state“. When Jeanette starts going to school („The Breeding Ground“) and confides in her mother about her feelings for another girl („Unnatural Passions“), she’s swept up in a feverish frenzy for her tainted soul. Confused, angry and alone, Jeanette strikes out on her own path, that involves a funeral parlour and an ice-cream van. Mixed in with the so-called reality of Jeanette’s existence growing up are unconventional fairy tales that transcend the everyday world, subverting the traditional preconceptions of the damsel in distress.

In Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, Winterson knits a complicated picture of teenage angst through a series of layered narratives, incorporating and subverting fairytales and myths, to present a coherent whole, within which her stories can stand independently. Imaginative and mischievous, she is a born storyteller, teasing and taunting the reader to reconsider their worldview. —Nicola Perry

      More than just good, 16. Juni 2011

      Rezension bezieht sich auf: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (Roman) (Taschenbuch)

      „Oranges“ is a novel that is not afraid of crossing borders of genres and putting medieval imagery where you would least expect it. To quote the author: „I’ve never understood why straight fiction is supposed to be for everyone, but anything with a gay character or that includes gay experience is only for queers.“ If this is what you want of a novel – if you want it to be more than just „lesbian/women literature“ – „Oranges“ is the novel you should definitely read. What Winterson does is to put a queer/female/lesbian story into a much bigger context, to build bridges by use of intertextuality. There is not a single page that is not still as innovative as it must have been when „Oranges“ was published, there is not a sentence that seems ill-fitted. On the first look, „Oranges are not the only fruit“ seems imperfect, lengthy passages invite the reader to fly over the lines, but I guess they are needed to characterize the protagonist thoroughly.
      You can learn a lot by listening to the narrator about how people’s minds work and how trauma creeps into their lifes.
      This is not one of the books you should carry with you on a lonely island in the Pacific Ocean because it would increase the chance of growing mad and you would quite likely forget to build a raft, simply because it is too mind-blowing. Oranges is not a good after-work read, it has too much consistence. It will overwhelm you, but you won’t notice immediately.
      The novel will introduce you to all shades of grey within the sometimes scary, sometimes hilarious and sometimes even likeable „communion of the holy“ and it will never please someone who is looking for „black and white“.

      One of the most beautiful, poetic books in existence!, 5. Dezember 1999

      Von Edmund Lau Kok Ming (Malaysia) – Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

      Rezension bezieht sich auf: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (Winterson, Jeanette) (Taschenbuch)

      Jeanette Winterson’s semi-autobiographical novel is one of the most beautifully written story of a middle-class girl struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, creativity, passion vs. her family/society’s inflexible „formed opinions“. The story of the persecution of a girl because of her sexual preference (in this case, lesbianism) is not new. It’s how Ms. Winterson presents her story. Fresh. Alive. Witty. Funny. Heartbreaking at times. Imaginative. Almost like you were holding a piece of someone’s soul in your hands rather than merely a book. I noticed that one reviewer mentioned that the book’s sexual nature is vulgar. I do not find this so. Even if it is, so what? Life is vulgar. Only those fond of sweeping the dirt under the carpet so that it stays out of sight (or those who drive lesbian girls from their house/church and pretend they don’t exist) will disagree with the innate vulgarity of all life. This book is the antidote for that kind of sanitized thinking. This book exposes that sanitized Christian middle-class thinking is weird, almost alien when observed sanely by a third party standing on the outside. This book celebrates life. Read it.

      Rezension bezieht sich auf: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (Winterson, Jeanette) (Taschenbuch)

      I liked this book a lot, too, but it does suffer from what might be identified as a first novel’s imperfections – especially the metaphorical fables plunked into the middle of the narrative without any connecting language. The rest of the novel so successfully carries us along in the flow of Jeanette’s life that the fables, meaningful or not, are interruptions. This quibble aside, OANTOF is a charming melange of working class comedy, evangelical exposé, and coming of age story. It’s not surprising that sexuality, that most fundamental aspect of the human condition, is what wakes Jeanette to her self and leads to the break with her church, yet in her innocence she isn’t even aware of the consequences until they are spelled out for her. That is wonderfully well conveyed and believable. Winterson wins my respect for her generous spirit: she treats no character meanly or vengefully, even the most repressive ones. If anything, that’s what proves the narrator has risen above the petty proscriptions among which she was raised.
