When will my order arrive?

The PowerBook is twenty-first century fiction that uses past, present and future as shifting dimensions of a multiple reality. The story is simple. An e-writer called Ali or Alix will write to order anything you like, provided that you are prepared to enter the story as yourself and take the risk of leaving it as someone else. You can be the hero of your own life. You can have freedom just for one night. But there is a price to pay.

Review quote

"Winterson is a rangy pirate, a world-swashbuckler, a plunderer of stories, literatures and hearts" -- Ali Smith Scotsman "Gorgeously written, shockingly moving...a wonderful, unforgettable read. Buy it for someone you really love" -- Simon Schama Mail on Sunday "Winterson writes with evangelical assurance, vaulting ambition, total control...witty, original, and good at what she does" Observer "Mischievous and intelligent, determined to provoke thoughts about love's reason, and its risk" The Times "Brilliant, evocative writing... Winterson never seems to put a foot wrong... It is funny, clever, entertaining and wholly delightful" Spectator
