Read full description of the books:
Alla base di Scritto sul corpo c'è una specie di gioco che Jeanette Winterson propone ai lettori, tanto più sorprendente e coinvolgente in quanto applicato a un romanzo d'amore che possiede il ritmo febbrile e coinvolgente di ogni vera passione: mentre di tutti gli altri personaggi sappiamo se si tratta di un uomo o di una donna, l'autrice non ci lascia mai capire a quale sesso appartenga l'io narrante, la voce e il punto di vista attraverso i quali vengono filtrate tutte le vicende e tutte le figure della storia. Di questa passione d'amore bruciante, poetica, profondamente incisa nei sensi e nella mente conosciamo l'oggetto - Louise, una bellissima donna sposata dai capelli color rosso Tiziano - ma non il soggetto, se non tramite rari indizi sparsi qua e là, troppo incerti per ricavarne una conferma definitiva. Attraverso una scrittura appassionata, ironica, scandita con ritmi inusuali, il lettore si troverà così a esplorare emozioni e sentimenti con un'ottica e con una partecipazione diverse, in un lungo e lento viaggio nelle profondità e negli enigmi dell'erotismo e del desiderio.
