    • 1989 Jeanette Winterson, Sexing the Cherry, Grove Press 1998, →ISBN, pages 3-4:
      I call him Jordan and it will do. He has no other name before or after. What was there to call him, fished as he was from the stinking Thames? A child can't be called Thames, no and not Nile either, for all his likeness to Moses. But I wanted to give him a river name, a name not bound to anything, just as the waters aren't bound to anything.
