About this book:

Koopman brilliantly wades through the flotsam and jetsam of generations, among shipwrecks and sunken treasures in an attempt at familial and collective healing. She faces up against her insecurities as a brown relatively privileged 'elder millennial'. An artist, a daughter, a queer woman in love, she is in pursuit of healing and always and forever trying to lose that last 5kgs to the great disappointment of her feminist self.
