Bryher, adventurer, novelist, publisher flees Victorian Britain for the raucous streets of Cairo and the sultry Parisian cafes. Among the vibrancy of artists and writers in twenties and thirties Paris, London, and beyond, she develops relationships with Ernest Hemingway, Sigmund Freud, Gertrude Stein, Man Ray, Sylvia Beach, and many others. This compelling memoir reveals Bryher's unconventional childhood, her relationship with her longtime partner H.D., her impact on modernism, and her profound sense of social justice, helping over 100 people escape from the Nazis before fleeing her safe-house on Lake Geneva and returning to H.D. in London.
