Notes

General Note
"A lyrical memoir [part prose - part verse] about going under, losing yourself, and finding your voice"--Page [4] of cover.
Description
This is the story of Yrsa Daley-Ward, and all the things that happened́even the terrible things. And God, there were terrible things.́ Its about her childhood in the northwest of England with her beautiful, careworn mother Marcia; the man formerly known as Dad (half fun, half frightening); and her little brother Roo, who sees things written in the stars. Its also about the surreal magic of adolescence, about growing up and discovering the power and fear of sexuality, about pitch-gray days of pills and powder and connection. Its about damage and pain, but also joy. Told with raw intensity and shocking honesty, The Terrible is a memoir of going under, losing yourself, and finding your voice.
