This is a semi-autobiographical novel about a girl coming of age as the adopted daughter if a Pentecostal family in England. Jeannette, the protagonist, comes to terms with the conflict between her own sexuality and the church's notions of sin. Themes include: repression, family & expectations, the bewilderment accompanying coming of age, and identity development. Well written, witty, and full of biblical allusion and mythical allegory, this is an excellent book! ( )

As an attempt to spread my reading wider I have been buying books that I probably wouldn't have a year ago and this is one of these. I was aware of Jeanette Winterson by name but that is about it. I decided on this book as it is relatively short so if I didn't get on with it wouldn't be a huge drag. The book is a semi-autobiographical coming of age story of Jeanette, a young girl adopted and brought up by her mother in a very religious household. At sixteen she decides to leave the family home for the woman she loves.

I found this book only ok, but as usual this isn't a reflection on the book itself but more that it just wasn't for me. Had I had any first hand experiences covered in the book it probably would have resonated more with me. ( )

Wonderful in every way, all the feels and all the inspiring, helpful, heartbreaking thoughts.
I can't get enough of Jeanette Winterson's writing.
Having some nutty Religious parents of my own it's really helpful to see someone else struggling then succeeding to manage despite it. ( )

While I was reading this I kept thinking about The Glass Castle, and what a generous book that was. That book's generosity helped made the mother and father characters complete people. Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is not that kind of a book--I wondered throughout the book about the mother--how did she end up like that, what was her story? But she comes off just as a crazy and mean person.

I suppose that's okay--Winterson should write the book she wants and needs to write, not necessarily the one I want to read. ( )

I picked this up after reading Winterson's recent memoir, "Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?" and I think I should have read them in reverse order. The memoir contains a good many of the stories that are fictionalized in this novel, and I found them more compelling in the non-fiction state. ( )

Narratively, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is built on a particular irony - a contradiction in which it takes some sly delight....The novel may be a story of self-liberation for a secular age, but it recalls a traditional sense that a person's story is made significant by reference to the Bible. Why should any individual's story matter, after all? Because it follows the pattern of God-given precept and God-directed narrative. All the early heroes and heroines of the English novel - Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Richardson's Pamela and Clarissa - make sense of their peculiar lives by reference to the Bible

Like most people I lived for a long time with my mother and father. My father liked to watch the wrestling, my mother liked to wrestle; it didn't matter what. She was in the white corner and that was that.
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit was written during the winter of 1983 and the spring of 1984. (Introduction)

Everyone thinks their own situation most tragic. I am no exception.
Going back after a long time will make you mad, because the people you left behind do not like to think of you changed, will treat you as they always did, accuse you of being indifferent, when you are only different.
Of course that is not the whole story, but that is the way with stories; we make them what we will. It's a way of explaining the universe while leaving the universe unexplained, it's a way of keeping it all alive, not boxing it into time. Everyone who tells a story tells it differently, just to remind us that everybody sees it differently.
She was Old Testament through and through. Not for her the meek and paschal Lamb, she was out there, up front with the prophets, and much given to sulking under trees when the appropriate destruction didn't materialise. Quite often it did, her will or the Lord's I can't say.
I didn't know quite what fornicating was, but I had read about it in Deuteronomy, and I knew it was a sin. But why was it so noisy? Most sins you did quietly so as not to get caught.
