"Frances Cannon's beautiful and searing memoir electrifies the reader with its deft, playful extended metaphors, its lyrical movement back and forth through time, and above all, its story arc built around deft crescendos; it reads like a page-turning novel, but Cannon's determined and often heartbreaking quest for personal truth also provokes the reader to re-imagine his or her own emotional terrain. I dare anyone to read it in more than one sitting."
