Publisher's Summary

This is a memoir of an unconventional childhood that explores what it means to be an only child. This audiobook is for all children who have ever felt like the fulcrum of a seesaw, the focus of all eyes and expectations, torn between love and fear, obedience and rebellion, duty and the longing to escape.

Only is revelatory, lyrical and life affirming, for anyone who has felt the burden of trying to be a good daughter.

Critic Reviews

"Unflinchingly honest, with a heart-melting scoop of ice cream." (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love)
"A conflicted love letter to her European origins and the uncrushable spirit of her glamorous, at times difficult parents, this lyrical page turner made me laugh and made me weep." (Magda Szubanski, author of Reckoning)
