From: Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (1985):
“My mother came to see me quite a lot in the end, but it was the busy season at church. They were planning the Christmas campaign. When she couldn’t come herself she sent my father, usually with a letter and a couple of oranges.
‘The only fruit,’ she always said.
Fruit salad, fruit pie, fruit for fools, fruited punch. Demon fruit, passion fruit, rotten fruit, fruit on Sunday.
Oranges are the only fruit.”
