Jayne A. Quan writes with honesty and humour about key moments in their life and transition. With lyric insight and quiet clarity, Quan navigates the intersection of loss, grief, memory and the power of love and healing through the lens of a body in motion. Courageous and poignant, this debut collection of essays deftly explores what it takes to live your own truth and carve a place for yourself in a world that offers no blueprint.
“Jayne Quan has built a cathedral of love and grief and acceptance; of bodies and faith, of loss and desire. A book that’s alive with truth and possibility, looking inwardly to our private sorrows while engaging politically with the world. A superb, deeply moving and unforgettable work.” — Sinéad Gleeson
“Jayne is just a lovely writer, and these searching, beautifully cadenced essays are filled with abiding truths.” — Anne Enright
