About the Author
Praise For The Mistress's Daughter…
"A compelling, devastating, and furiously good book written with an honesty few of us would risk."
"Fierce and eloquent."
-The New York Times Book Review
"As startling and riveting as her fiction . . . a lacerating memoir in which the formerly powerless child triumphs with the help of a mighty pen."
-San Francisco Chronicle
"Rich in humanity and humor . . . Homes combines an unfussy candor with a deliciously droll, quirky wit. . . . Her energy and urgency become infectious."
"I fell in love with it from the first page and read compulsively to the end."
"As a memoirist, A. M. Homes takes a characteristically fierce and fearless approach. And she has a whopper of a personal story to tell."
