In a fantastic world that is and is not seventeenth-century England, a baby is found floating in the Thames. The child, Jordan, is rescued by Dog Woman and grows up to travel the world like Gulliver, though he finds that the world’s most curious oddities come from his own mind. Winterson leads the reader from discussions on the nature of time to Jordan’s fascination with journeys concealed within other journeys, all with a dizzying speed that shoots the reader from epiphany to shimmering epiphany.

3.0 Rivers
This is a strange book. I suppose post modern is what some would say. Historical fiction is what others would call it. It’s about rivers and how rivers – the Thames, Delaware, Schuylkill, St. Laurent, Ole Man River - are time. How cities are time. How everywhere you step, you ste...
