Product Details

Praise

“Harding is a conjurer. Give him a long-since demolished stairwell, and he’ll give you a world—its sound, its smell, the feeling that you could stumble upon it still.”—Rachel Cooke, Observer

“Stunning.”—Amanda Heller, Boston Globe

“Beautifully written, funny and sad, this book is simply captivating.”—Cressida Connolly, Daily Telegraph

“Fluid and invigorating … a delicate and absorbing account of Harding’s investigation into the circumstances of his adoption.”—John Palattella, Nation

“Harding’s story is that of an adopted boy growing up in London, and his decision later to search for his natural mother. Readers get a detailed chronicle of the search and its ramifications, turning up hidden facets of the family Harding thought he knew.”—Library Journal

“An able, imaginative work of kinship and family.”—Kirkus

“Its colorful, insightful revelations about his adoptive parents and compelling discoveries about his birth mother give this slender memoir a special magic and beauty that will grip the reader long after the final page is turned.”—Publishers Weekly
