The world may slowly be coming to an end, but for Billie and Spike it's just the beginning. Sent into space to explore the Blue Planet - a strange but habitable new world where leaves are as big as cities, birds nest in shells and humanity could have a second chance - they start to fall in love. But what will they discover when in their newfound land? As they whirl into the future, through new lifetimes, different identities and dazzling stories, will they ever truly find a home? "Thrilling... as full of ideas as a Catherine Wheel of sparks... glittering fragments of invention that fizz and pop as they fly into the darkness" - Sunday Telegraph "Delicious... moving and witty" - TLS "A dazzling feat of storytelling" - New Statesman "A swirling mass of ideas... gloriously poetic" - Time Out "A remarkably engaging and involving read... playfulness, stylistic brio, ambition and sheer imaginative vim" - Sunday Times "Her most engrossing and adventurous novel in some years" - Daily Telegraph

Author Biography

Jeanette Winterson OBE was born in Manchester. Adopted by Pentecostal parents she was raised to be a missionary. This did and didn't work out. Discovering early the power of books she left home at 16 to live in a Mini and get on with her education. After graduating from Oxford University she worked for a while in the theatre and published her first novel at 25. Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit is based on her own upbringing but using herself as a fictional character. She scripted the novel into a BAFTA-winning BBC drama. 27 years later she re-visited that material in the bestselling memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? She has written 10 novels for adults, as well as children's books, non-fiction and screenplays. She writes regularly for the Guardian. She lives in the Cotswolds in a wood and in Spitalfields, London. She believes that art is for everyone and it is her mission to prove it.
