About this product
- Description'Of course, I've always had a secret. Have I always kwn it? I suppose I did, in a way - in the way that children kw such things. That is, I knew and didn't kw-'In this vel, Eva Hoffman explores various kinds and strata of secrets: intimate secrets, and secrets of family past; the kinds of secrets that can be decoded from clues, and the kind that themselves seem to offer tantalizing clues to the fundamental mysteries of the human selfhood. This is a story about a peculiarly powerful mother-daughter bond and about a haunting, about a young woman's quest for individuation and the challenges posed by contemporary science to our deepest tions of individuality. Using the near future to reflect on the conditions of the present, Hoffman has written a tale that grapples with the oldest riddles of identity, consciousness and self-kwledge - a vel of ideas for our time, and an imaginative fable whose resonance is timeless.
- Author BiographyEva Hoffman was born in Krakow, Poland, and immigrated to America at the age of thirteen. The recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Whiting Award and an award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and letters, she currently lives in London
