Written on the Body

by Jeanette Winterson

Ashley Barry: This is likely the single best love story you will ever read in your life. It is both uniquely and brilliantly written, and a portion of the text is highly experimental. Not only is it told from the point of view of a genderless narrator (meaning we never find out if the narrator is Hetero, homo, or bisexual), but the narrator elevates his/her love for louise, the object of affection, by loving not just her eyes or her hair. The narrator loves even her cells and her tissues. This book will challenge you to think about love, relationships, and our bodies in a beautiful and provocative way. This book is a little hard to get into at first, but if you stick with it, it will certainly be worth the effort.
