Like the best memoirs, this one is written with novelistic and poetic flair. Red Dust Road is a fantastic, probing and heart-warming read. --The Independent
A clear-eyed, witty and unsentimental account of the push and pull between nature and nurture. Happiness shines through. --The Sunday Times
The book sings with life... it is as warm and spirited, as funny and full of life, as her adoptive parents. --The Literary Review
Starred Review. Kay s complex life story is fascinating on all fronts cultural, emotional, and artistic. But it is her sparkling warmth, generous candor, depthless compassion, glinting humor, and linguistic pizazz that make this such a stellar chronicle of a deeply personal investigative and imaginative journey, a profoundly affecting inquiry into the enigmas of self and kinship, and a celebration of transcendent goodness.
