First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket. In this metaphysical thriller, She wakes in an emergency room in a London hospital, to a voice that tells her, "You're on your own now. Take care. Be good." She has no knowledge of her name, her past, or even her species. It takes her a while to realize that she is human and that the beings who threaten, befriend, and violate her are other people. Some of whom seem to know all about her. As she tries to piece together the clues to her life, she discovers her violently erased past is only one of the riddles in this eerie, blackly funny, and sometimes disorienting novel.
