Are you Married or are you from Kenya? is a memoir in episodes which explores the interface between my eccentric bohemian parents, the rootless childhood I shared with my twin-brother in Kenya, Ireland, London and Spain and our tenuous connection to the real-world. Comic (think David Sedaris), bittersweet and quirky.
