Why be happy when you could be normal  12.95EUR 

Description

In 1985 Jeanette Winterson's first novel, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit was published. It was Jeanette's version of the story of terraced house in Accrington, of a young girl adopted by Pentecostal parents. She is supposed to grow up to be a missionary, instead she falls in love with a woman. Disaster.

Why be happy when you could be normal is that story's 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.

'Brave and beautiful, a testament to the forces of intelligence, heart and imagination.' Spectator

'Boasts everything that she does best: courage, ferocity and prose that soars' Julie Myerson - New Statesman

Why be happy when you could be normal is also available in Dutch: Waarom gelukkig zijn als je ook normaal kunt zijn
