Läser underbara Jeanette Wintersons självbiografi Why be happy when you could be normal? Lyssna bara på den här fantastiska inledningen:
When my mother was angry with me, which was often, she said, 'The Devil lead us to the wrong crib.'
The image of Satan taking time off from the Cold War and McCarthyism to visit Manchester in 1960 - purpose of visit: to deceive Mrs Winterson - has a flamboyant theatricality to it.
You had me at hello.
