SEXING THE CHERRY. A Novel

London: Bloomsbury, (1989). First edition. Hardcover. Author's fourth book. Set in 17th century London, Sexing the Cherry is about the journeys of a mother, known as The Dog Woman, and her protégé, Jordan." Every journey conceals another journey within its lines; the path not taken and the forgotten angle. These are the journeys I wish to record. Not the ones I made but the ones I might have made, perhaps did make in some other place or time." In the reign of Charles the Second, the first pineapple came to England. Who brought it and why? Pineapple as metaphor is not the only fruit to be both real and imaginary. This is a story which ebulliently rejects any single reading of history or life and revels in the multiplicity of truth and time. 167 pages. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14565
