Literature: Sexing the Cherry
Sexing The Cherry is a 1989 novel, a surrealist work of historical fiction by Jeanette Winterson. The "present" of the novel is arguably the 17th century, with references to Charles I, King of England and Oliver Cromwell as contemporary figures.

It follows two main characters: Dog Woman and her adopted son Jordan through their journeys and searches for love. Dog Woman is a grotesque and outspoken woman who hates the Puritan church and Jordan is an idealistic dreamer who is chasing after a princess he loves who may or may not exist. The novel is criticized for its ending which to some people feels tacked on.
