'Rachel Morris is one of the smartest storytellers I have ever met . . . a wonderful and beguiling book.'
James Rebanks, author of The Shepherd's Life.
'In this elegant and eloquent book Morris explores the contents of the boxes under her bed to calmly piece together a family pattern of loss, sadness and extreme eccentricity. As a museum-maker, she meditates on the nature of museums: the Museums of Me we all carry in our heads, and the public institutions in which variations of the world's history are told . . . a delight.'
Julia Blackburn, author of Time Song: In Search of Doggerland.
'A fascinating meditation on the life of objects and their power to trigger our memories. It awakened my curiosity to the realms of history, pain and longing we access through the simple act of collecting.'
Dina Nayeri, author of The Ungrateful Refugee.
