Muriel Spark and Jeanette Winterson (LIT2267.01)

Benjamin Anastas

***Time Change***

One was born half-Jewish in Edinburgh, Scotland and found Christ while starving in a London bedsit and taking Benzedrine to stay up writing; the other came from Manchester and was raised to be an evangelist by the Pentecostal family that had adopted her until her first lesbian affair got her kicked out of church and family and she had to work her way through Oxford. Muriel Spark and Jeanette Winterson are divided by a literary generation, but they are both experimentalists in the truest and most exhilarating sense of the word. We’ll read widely and deeply in both of their oeuvres and emerge with a deeper appreciation of these two extraordinary women writers.
