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.

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.
