New York: Knopf, 2000. First American edition. Hardcover. A novel that probes the boundaries of the Internet. Ali writes stories on email for anyone who wants them. She promises “freedom just for one night,” but she does not do so without a warning: the story might change you. Ask for an epic love story and you will get one, but Ali will be cast in it, too, and the lines between the real and imagined may blur. Plucking characters from history and myth, Winterson journeys through time and stops in London, Paris, and Capri, all the while melding the language of love with that of computers. In The PowerBook she has found a brilliant conceit through which to showcase her increasingly bold voice. 289 pages. A fine copy in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Item #15269
