The first in a new series of Therapeutic Tales from the School of Life
Anna is a kind and thoughtful person, in her mid-twenties. But lately, life has been hard. Her job is extremely stressful, her relationship is lacking balance and support, she has a difficult and complicated family history. It’s not hard to see a bit of ourselves in her.
In a style that’s brief and poignant, we follow Anna as she slowly unpacks the roots of her own self-suspicion and discovers something we all deserve but have so often been denied: a voice of our own.
With beautiful documentary photography on each page, this is fiction as therapy—and it seeks to offer the reader consolation, recognition and therapeutic insight.
