Anne is currently working on a memoir set at the University of Oxford, England where she was a student in the late 1960s. Drawing on 300+ letters from the time as well as original research in Oxford archives, she tells a coming of age story about a young woman who has style, wit, and a serious skin disorder. Young Anne tries to move beyond her parents’ expectations for her and flourish—or at least manage—in the world of 1960s England. But we are not left alone with this young woman. Anne’s older self reflects on her earlier life from the wry perspective of a more experienced writer.
