In The Gap of Time, Jeanette Winterson's cover version of The Winter's Tale, we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crisis, to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia. Her story is one of childhood friendship, money, status, technology, and the elliptical nature of time. Written with energy and wit, this is a story of the consuming power of jealousy on the one hand and redemption and the enduring love of a lost child on the other.

The men are great
I enjoyed the male readers, but I found the female reader almost insufferable. Great storyline, though, and brilliantly written. Worth a read, particularly if you enjoy Shakespeare and The Winter's Tale.

I'm a Winter's Tale scholar, so I'm biased about Winterson's interpretive moves. The literary intrusions are a little taxing, and she gets Bohemia all wrong. She nails the melodrama of Sicilia, however. It's not Shakespeare, but it's quite wonderful.
