Description
"The one truly generous act of my mother's that I could really put my finger on: her leaving me alone". So writes Jenny Diski of the parent she has neither seen nor heard from (to her great relief) since 1966, the year her father died.<P>Diski emerged from a devastating childhood, followed by a teenage oblivion of heavy drug use and psychiatric wards, in search of a haven. She found one in Antarctica, where everything "is colored white and filled with a singing silence". This blistering account interweaves the story of her journey to the end of the earth, her daughter's search for Diski's mother, and her own search of her memory-hardened heart.
