Lighthousekeeping by Jeanette WInterson

Lighthousekeeping is very fast reading with likable characters and wonderful imagery. Silver is a character whose purpose in life seems to be to tell stories. Her story is interwoven with a couple of different stories she hears and tells, most of them dealing with a character named Babel Dark whose own story has been told since the invention of story-telling, I think.

I suspect Winterson is an "everyone" postmodern writer (she's very popular), whether you like postmodern books or not, and I will be reading more of her work.
