    As a product of a mixed marriage, life was tough for Ann when her only black role model (her father, a Guiana Scholar, Oxford undergraduate and aspiring concert pianist from the Caribbean) left to tour the West Indies supporting the enigmatic Zorina in an attempt to kick-start his career. Aside from one letter written over many days onboard ship, Bruce Wendell never contacted his wife and family again, leaving the task of communicating his desertion to Zorina upon her return. Until her death, Ann's mother remained unwaveringly loyal to her wayward husband, defending his artistic temperament to her bitter children, who couldn't help but compare his privileged, educated upbringing with their own life of deprivation in a pre-welfare state Britain. It was many years before Ann found herself in a position to trace her missing father, and this book covers that journey, taking her from Antigua to Oxford to New York.
