‘Fiction needs its specifics, it’s anchors. It needs also to pass beyond them. It needs to be weighed down with characters we can touch and know, it needs to fly right through them into larger, universal space. This paradox makes work readable and durable, from its impossible tension, something harmonious is born.’

– Jeanette Winterson, Introduction to Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit
