Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson
A genderless narrator leafs through past affairs with men and women, contrasting them with their present relationship with Louise, a married woman.
"Written on the body is a secret code only visible in certain lights: the accumulation of a lifetime gather there. In places the palimpsest is so heavily worked that the letters feel like braille. I like to keep my body rolled away from prying eyes, never unfold too much, tell the whole story.
I didn't know that Louise would have reading hands. She has translated me into her own book."
