“The dramatic exaggeration may well be a coping mechanism.”

Audible audiobook read by the author

Winterson’s semi-autobiographical debut novel has a protagonist who is also named Jeanette. She’s the adopted child of a fervent believer in an evangelical church, and is being raised to become an evangelical preacher. But Jeaneatte is attracted to girls, and this is viewed by her mother, her pastor and followers of her church as a sign that she is possessed of demons and cannot possibly be trusted to “speak the truth.” Her struggles to balance her faith, her love of God and her budding sexuality form the basis of the story.

Winterson’s novel is a glimpse at one teenager’s path out of childhood and into adulthood. Oh, the angst of teen years! The confusion and questions that adults don’t seem to want to answer (heck, they don’t want you to even ask), the emotional roller coaster of attraction vs guilt. The first time one realizes that other people – people who seem like perfectly nice people – live differently that one’s own family.

First published in 1985, I can see why it became so popular. But I’m long past this stage of life and I’ve read many books treating coming-of-age, including those featuring LGBTQ characters. I thought it was fine for its genre, but not particularly memorable to me.

The author narrates the audio version herself, and does a fine job of it. ( )

In a word, Jeannette Winterson's prose is effervescent. I couldn't stop reading. It seems odd to read such a lively, even humorous account of a grim childhood, but she pulls it off. The author uses her own name for the protagonist yet insists it's not a memoir but a novel. But the book refuses to sit primly in the genre of novel, interspersing Bible allusions, fairy tales, and medieval legends that carry the story forward.
This book is a testimony to a child's resilience raised by a woman whose religious devotion has gone beyond fanaticism to neurosis. The woman's husband is a cipher; the central figures are the woman and the girl and an assortment of eccentric "aunts" who attend their church. The underground stream that feeds the child's resilience is literature, in her case an eclectic mix of Deuteronomy, Revelation, fairy tale, and Jane Eyre. Books were a crucial element in her salvation. She doesn't say this outright, but it's clearly so. No doubt, this book will be someone else's or that of many others. ( )

Narratively, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is built on a particular irony - a contradiction in which it takes some sly delight....The novel may be a story of self-liberation for a secular age, but it recalls a traditional sense that a person's story is made significant by reference to the Bible. Why should any individual's story matter, after all? Because it follows the pattern of God-given precept and God-directed narrative. All the early heroes and heroines of the English novel - Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Richardson's Pamela and Clarissa - make sense of their peculiar lives by reference to the Bible

Like most people I lived for a long time with my mother and father. My father liked to watch the wrestling, my mother liked to wrestle; it didn't matter what. She was in the white corner and that was that.
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit was written during the winter of 1983 and the spring of 1984. (Introduction)

Everyone thinks their own situation most tragic. I am no exception.
Going back after a long time will make you mad, because the people you left behind do not like to think of you changed, will treat you as they always did, accuse you of being indifferent, when you are only different.
Of course that is not the whole story, but that is the way with stories; we make them what we will. It's a way of explaining the universe while leaving the universe unexplained, it's a way of keeping it all alive, not boxing it into time. Everyone who tells a story tells it differently, just to remind us that everybody sees it differently.
She was Old Testament through and through. Not for her the meek and paschal Lamb, she was out there, up front with the prophets, and much given to sulking under trees when the appropriate destruction didn't materialise. Quite often it did, her will or the Lord's I can't say.
I didn't know quite what fornicating was, but I had read about it in Deuteronomy, and I knew it was a sin. But why was it so noisy? Most sins you did quietly so as not to get caught.
