Anna Kavan was one of the greatest unsung enigmas in 20th-century British literature. Born as, Helen Ferguson who lived a fraught childhood and two failed marriages led her to change her name to that of one of her characters. Despite struggling with mental illness and heroin addiction for most of her life, she was still able to write fiction that was as powerful and memorable as any English female writer of the last 150 years. Doris Lessing is the Nobel Prize-winning writer of such classic works as The Golden Notebook and The Grass Is Singing.From Publishers Weekly:
The late cult writer Kavan presents a hallucinogenic tale of a woman seeking to escape from her sadistic husband.
