The Battle of the Sun by Jeanette Winterson


This is not a book to dash through. It is one to read slowly or aloud, in order to explore its complexity. The city's transformation, for example, is a satirical lesson about value (which does not lie in material things); and the "battle of the sun" of the title is a both a literal battle, and a daily fight to be master of oneself.
