The PowerBook is twenty-first century fiction that uses past, present and future as shifting dimensions of a multiple reality. The story is simple: an e-mail writer called Ali will compose anything you like, on order, provided that you are prepared to enter the story as yourself and take the risk of leaving it as someone else. You can be the hero of your own life. You can have freedom just for one night. But there is a price, and Ali discovers that she, too, will have to pay it. And as it travels from London to Paris, Capri and cyberspace, The PowerBook reinvents itself using fairy tales, contemporary myths and popular culture to weave a story of failed but requited love.

Winterson doing her thing with love and sex and hurt and mystery. So frequently she makes the most sense when her narative is the most fractured.
