'Explores with sharp beauty the mystery at the centre of loving anyone' Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure


How does the world see you?

Nine characters illuminate an unknowable woman. From the school art teacher who sees a spark of talent in her, to the man whose fleeting passion with her could change his life, to the female student whose friendship turns into love.
Deeply affecting and luminous, this kaleidoscopic novella explores the nature of intimacy and how each connection you make forms who you are.
