"Lavinia Greenlaw's memoir is like none I've ever read—it unravels identity like a novel. It is as spritely and as curious as an essay. Like music, it honors silence as much as it does sound. Greenlaw, a gifted mix-master of forms, has composed a coming-of-age experience that rings magically true for all of us." —Heidi Julavits, author of The Uses of Enchantment
Lavinia Greenlaw has published two novels, including Mary George of Allnorthover, which won France’s Prix du Premier Roman, and three books of poetry. She lectures at Goldsmiths College and lives in London.
