a late-waking life
(Weidenfeld & Nicolson, Jan 2022)

“Tanya is an electrifying voice and her book reminds me of the very best memoirs…”

Lettice Franklin, Weidenfeld & Nicolson

“How to live. How to die. How to reach back with understanding, even as we were going beyond the ones we’d loved. In that perpetual minute which I believed might be the last, my life spread itself out like a quilt held up to the light. I studied it. The patterns and rips and repairs. Determined – if only for my own self-respect – to die wise, clear-sighted. The most awake I’d ever been.”
