Description

In this darkly funny and poignant memoir of love and addiction, award-winning author Anna Marrian chronicles her attempts to win the love of her charming, elusive, and boundary-crossing father. With clear-eyed honesty, she takes us from preteen transgressions in a New England boarding school to breaking father-daughter taboos in the heart of Africa to the grip of her heroin addiction in a squalid London squat with a ne'er-do-well lover, illuminating the power - and limitations - of family ties and the strength it takes for one woman to finally break free of those bonds.

Anna Marrian has written for the New York Times, the Observer, The Daily News, Self, Newsweek, Jane, Glamour, and Behind the Bedroom Door, among others. Anna holds an MFA in creative writing from Hunter and earned fellowships from the Hertog Foundation and Tin House. She teaches at the New School and Hunter College and mentors writers privately and in writing workshops in Brooklyn and Sag Harbor. Anna is currently working on a memoir, This Must Be the Place, a coming-of-age narrative set in London, Kenya, and New York in the '90s, about family members who repeatedly fail each other and Anna's subsequent descent into the London squatting scene to find a protector at any cost. Anna is the coeditor of Local Knowledge, an art and literary print magazine. Anna lives in Brooklyn.

This is a short audiobook published by Shebooks - high-quality fiction, memoir, and journalism for women, by women.
