AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A brilliant debut from a neurodiverse author that explores a young woman's magical, sensitive, and passionate inner world.

'A young woman gets ready to go to a party. She arrives, feels overwhelmed, leaves, and then returns. Minutely attuned to the people who come into her view, and alternating between alienation and profound connection, she is hilarious, self-aware, sometimes acerbic, and always honest.

'And by the end of the night, she’s shown us something radical about love, loss, and the need to belong.' (Publication summary)
