A brief guide to erotic fiction

<b>Oranges are not the only fruit by Jeanette Winterson</b><br/> Winterson refutes that her first novel is a wholly autobiographical account, but there are undeniable parallels with her own life story: Oranges tells of a girl named Jeanette who – raised by northern, working-class Evangelist parents – is on her way to becoming a Pentecostal Christian missionary. At the age of sixteen, however, she falls passionately in love with another young woman, and everything changes. Direct and uninhibited, this novel- first published in 1985- is an exploration of a deep emotional and physical connection between two women, and helped secure Winterson as one of Britain’s most celebrated living writers.
