The Skin Above My Knee book cover

ONE OF THE WASHINGTON POST’S “BOOKS WE’VE LOVED SO FAR IN 2017”

“With clear-eyed courage and spare, lyrical prose, The Skin Above My Knee carries us not only into the mesmerizingly compelling world of a professional oboist, it also takes us into her love-starved childhood, her self-destructive young adulthood, and a descent into a solitary darkness that only her art can save her from; Marcia Butler has composed her own music here, and it is filled with passion and yearning and ultimately the kind of beauty that can save us all. This is a gorgeous book.”
Andre Dubus III
