William Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale' is retold as 'The Gap of Time' in this delicate, visionary cover version of the great play. One of Shakespeare's late plays, it tells the story of a king whose jealousy results in the banishment of his baby daughter and the death of his beautiful wife. His daughter is found and brought up by a shepherd on the Bohemian coast, but through a series of extraordinary events, father and daughter, and eventually mother too, are reunited. In this modern retelling we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crisis, to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia. Jeanette Winterson's tale is one of childhood friendship, money, status, technology and the elliptical nature of time. 274pp. A brilliant and précis of the original play. US first edition 2015. Remainder mark.
