Fruity

Just finished reading Jeanette Winterson's 1985 classic Oranges are Not the Only Fruit. Great book, and a striking cover too, despite it being a "NOW A MAJOR BBC TV DRAMA" edition.



However, I was rather taken aback to find that on the final, blank, page of the book - this was a second hand copy, which Sarah picked up from a Brixton charity shop - a previous owner had scrawled this:

If you think that sleeping with me...

Loud and clear. It's clearly not a comment on the text; why was it written? Who by? And for whom?

Judging by reviews, it looks like a great book. Not sure about the last page inscription, though ...
