A very rewarding reading experienceMy favorite uote“The Buddhists say there are 149 ways to God I'm not looking for God only for myself and that is far complicated God has had a great deal written about Him; nothing has been written about me God is bigger like my mother easier to find even in the dark I could be anywhere and since I can't describe myself I can't ask for help”

Sexing the CherryS is very good and the main topic to read with book detai. This book feels like Winterson's love letter to time its uncertainties and the almost imperceptible irregularities to the fickle nature of reality and to the ephemerality of truth It can even be read as a lengthy ode and I am completely besotted with itAt the crux of the book is the idea that the spacetime we inhabit is a lie we tell ourselves perhaps even a mirage projected by our thirst for a tangible reality But reality itself is not static it is a product of intersections between multiple trajectories and some of these points appear to be densely concentrated with truth than others And so the dog woman and Jordan live through multiple ages through various phatasmagoric landscapes bearing witness to the erratic looping and unwinding of timeWinterson clearly believes in imbuing her characters with an agency a sense of self that can even be separated from the story This is very evident in her retelling of the tale of the twelve dancing sisters where each sister practices an autonomy that is unshakeable in its essenceThe events outlined in Sexing The Cherry happen in two different centuries perhaps even simultaneously What's significant is the subterfuge of its characters across all lifetimes their unapologetic resistance to the sedimentary nature of time and the homage they pay both to their past and future selves since all of time is just a single point in this book while making their selfhoods anewWith its occasional dark humour and witty commentary on love sex gender capitalism sin and religion Sexing The Cherry is nothing short of a masterpiece The writing style also reminded me of one of my favourite poetry collections The World Doesn't End Suffice it to say that I am in love with this book My experience of time is mostly like my experience with maps Flat moving in a or less straight line from one point to another Being in time in a continuous present is to look at a map and not see the hills shapes and undulations but only the flat form There is no sense of dimension only a feeling for the surface Thinking about time is dizzy and precipitousThinking about time is like turning the globe round and round recognizing that all journeys exist simultaneously that to be in one place is not to deny the existence of another even though that other place cannot be felt or seen our usual criteria for belief
