This chapter focuses on the novel Lighthousekeeping. In 2003, Jeanette Winterson said that all the books she had written from Oranges to The Power Book ‘make a cycle or a series’ and should be seen as ‘one long continuous piece of work’. This statement has been contradicted by D. J. Taylor, who sees Lighthousekeeping as confirmation that ‘everything she writes is essentially a variation on the same thing’ and firmly concludes that what the new novel offers is ‘more of the same’. Most reviewers, however, have described the new novel in very positive terms, as ‘a light and lovely thing’ and as ‘a brilliant, glittering piece of work, the kind that makes you gasp out loud at the sheer beauty of the language’.
