"Rachel Cusk’s unique perspective shines through in these new essays"

Her writing is bold, weird and never sentimental. “The thing about time,” she tells her teenaged daughters, “is that it can transform the landscape without improving it. 

It can change everything except what needs to change. They fidget, roll their eyes, check their phones. That’s really depressing, they say.”
