About the Author
Leigh Kennedy was born in Denver, Colorado but is now at home in Hastings, East Sussex. Faces, her first short story collection, was followed by two novels, The Journal of Nicholas the American and Saint Hiroshima. Some of her survival strategies have involved deciphering doctors' handwriting, answering phones and alphabetizing things, but she would prefer to stitch and pluck strings and go for a walk. She has lived in Britain for over 25 years and has two grown children.
