Jeanette Winterson’s Holiday Recommendations


“This is a great one to give—it’s the sort of thing you can keep in the loo at Christmas when you’ve eaten too much food.” Jeanette Winterson reveals some of her favorite books for the holiday season, including The Trouble With Women (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2016) by cartoonist Jacky Fleming, Tara Westover’s Educated: A Memoir (Random House, 2018), and her own collection of winter tales and festive recipes, Christmas Days: 12 Stories and 12 Feasts for 12 Days (Grove Press, 2016).

New Ghost Stories


Eight Ghosts: The English Heritage Book of New Ghost Stories (September Publishing, 2017) is a collection of “eight chilling tales” that are “set within the walls of England’s grandest houses, castles, and forts.” Inspired by visits to English Heritage’s historical properties, the spooky collection includes stories by Sarah Perry, Max Porter, and Jeanette Winterson, among others.
