Description

The Stone Gods is one of Jeanette Winterson’s most imaginative novels — an interplanetary love story; a traveller’s tale; a hymn to the beauty of the world

On the airwaves, all the talk is of the new blue planet – pristine and habitable, like our own 65 million years ago, before we took it to the edge of destruction. And off the air, Billie and Spike are falling in love. What will happen when their story combines with the world’s story, as they whirl towards Planet Blue, into the future? Will they – and we – ever find a safe landing place?

Publisher Review

Playful but impassioned... Winterson cloaks her disillusionment with our political excesses in a sustained, imaginative jeu d'esprit. Her writing is funny and beautiful * The Times * This witty, challenging and thought-provoking novel should be essential reading for anyone concerned with how we live and how we might survive -- Daily Mail
