Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson
I like the nine dancers and the big fat protagonist. I like nine. I like nine errors and Linus Slug. I am now writing a chapbook reworked from 2008 and it’s all because of the nine. The new chapbook is called The Circle Line. Nine line poems. Each poem a different station on the circle line. Using bits of Dante. And lotsa other sources. There are nine circles of hell too. 3 sets of trinities. The third gender three times. And the third way with three different people. Nine. Don’t we all love a good nine. Thank miss Jeanette Winterson who hid books under her bed cause as a child she was only allowed books bout the bible and such . . love live nine . . and Jeanette Winterson ..
