In a fantastic world that is and is not seventeenth century England a baby is found floating in the Thames The child Jordan is rescued by Dog Woman and grows up to travel the world like Gulliver though he finds that the world s most curious oddities come from his own mind Winterson leads the reader from discussions on the nature of time to Jordan s fascination with journeys concealed within other journeys all with a dizzying speed that shoots the reader from epiphany to shimmering epiphany, When I was asked to choose a myth to write about I realized I had chosen already The story of Atlas holding up the world was in my mind before the telephone call had ended If the call had not come perhaps I would never have written the story but when the call did come that story was waiting to be written Rewritten The recurring language motif of i Weight i is I want to tell the story again My work is full of cover versions I like to take stories we think we know and record them differently In the retelling comes a new emphasis or bias and the new arrangement of the key elements demands that fresh material be injected into the existing text i Weight i moves far away from the simple story of Atlas s punishment and his temporary relief when Heracles takes the world off his shoulders I wanted to explore loneliness isolation responsibility burden and freedom too because my version has a very particular end not found elsewhere from Jeanette Winterson s Foreword to i Weight i, i The PowerBook i is twenty first century fiction that uses past present and future as shifting dimensions of a multiple reality The story is simple An e writer called Ali or Alix will write to order anything you like provided that you are prepared to enter the story as yourself and take the risk of leaving it as someone else You can be the hero of your own life You can have freedom just for one night But there is a price to pay, Handel is a failed priest but abiding Catholic with elitist tendencies whose work as a doctor forces him to consider social questions that he would probably rather avoid Picasso as she calls herself is a young artist who has been sexually abused by her brother but whose family thinks she is at fault for her dark moods Sappho is indeed Sappho the lesbian poet of ancient Greece who here proclaims herself a sensualist and then proceeds to dissect the union of language and lust The three converge in a place that may be England in a not too distant future made ugly by pollution and even uglier by greed This is not a novel but an extended rift on art sex religion social repression the dangers of patriarchy and everything that is wrong with the contemporary drift to the right As such it will be hard going for most readers but those with some patience will discover exceptionally evocative writing and a vivifying review of some much discussed contemporary issues
