Two notorious Lancashire witches are already in Lancaster Castle waiting trial. Why is the beautiful and wealthy Alice Nutter defending them? And why is she among the group of thirteen on Pendle Hill? Elsewhere, a starved, abused child lurks. And a Jesuit priest and former Gunpowder plotter, recently returned from France, is widely rumoured to be heading for Lancashire. But who will offer him sanctuary? And how quickly can he be caught?

Aboard the QE2 and under the stars, three lives converge. Two physicists - Jove, a married man, and Alice, a single woman - meet and commence an affair, only for Alice to fall in love with Jove's wife, Stella, a poet. Winterson captures all three sides of this triangle of desire - and the rich history that has brought them together - with her prodigious passion and intellect. Encompassing ideas that reach from the Greeks to the Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) of modern physics, Winterson incorporates the entire universe from Liverpool to New York, from quarks to cosmos - in a novel of sex and the spirit, the real and the fantastic, male and female, science and religion, and love in all its frailty and excess

Tracey Emin : works 1963-2006 by Tracey Emin( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most highly publicized of the infamous Young British Artists, Emin has stirred as much controversy as she has acclaim, being both highly personal and extremely original in her art. Emin's work is engaging, titillating, disturbing, and startlingly confessional. One of her most famous pieces is Everyone I Ever Slept With 1963-1995, a tent appliquEd with names. Another notorious work, My Bed--the scene where she spent four days contemplating suicide--was exhibited at Tate Britain when the artist was short-listed for the Turner prize in 1999. Though denounced by conservative critics at the outset, Emin's work has attracted serious critical attention for more than a decade. In the words of Art in America, "What brought Emin to prominence was shock value, but what keeps her work powerful as she continues is the strength and nuance of its form and content." Compiled in close collaboration with the artist herself--and unprecedented in its scope--this is the definitive book on Emin, featuring drawings, paintings, sculptures, appliquEs and embroideries, neon and video stills as well as her own writing."--Publisher's website

Art objects : essays on ecstasy and effrontery by Jeanette Winterson( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An act of courage and effrontery, a uniquely human endeavor that defies time and differences, art offers new realities, emotions and worlds to anyone prepared to meet the demands it places on us. Art objects to the lie that life is small, fragmented and mean. Art objects to the myth of inevitable decay. Winterson's eloquent vision of objecting, transforming, exuberant art is presented in pieces on painting, autobiography, style and the future of fiction. She also declares her admiration for Modernism and examines the writing of Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot and Gertrude Stein. More personally, she confronts the current fascination with the writer's life or sexuality instead of the work itself, and describes her relationship to her own fiction
