'There is no such thing as autobiography, there is only art and lies'. Set in a London of the near future, its three principal characters, Handel, Picasso and Sappho, separately flee the city and find themselves on the same train, drawn to one another through the curious agency of a book. Stories within stories take us through the unlikely love-affairs of one Doll Sneerpiece, an 18th century bawd, and into the world of painful beauty where language has the power to heal. Art & Lies is a question and a quest: How shall I live?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"If we want language to be handled with vitality and suppleness, if we want to consider serious questions of philosophy, art and sexuality, if we want writers to aspire to beauty, then we should be glad of Jeanette Winterson...she is a writer who will continue to astonish, to please and to vex. Art & Lies does all these things" -- Cressida Connolly * Literary Review *
"Brave and ambitious" * Independent *
"Winterson's belief in love, beauty, and most of all, language, is evangelical and redemptive...it is timely and exciting to read" -- Rachel Cusk * The Times *
