My best friends and staunchest allies,
Joseph and Lorraine Byrnes - my parents -
the most generous, honest, loving, creative,
I have ever known.
The unyielding love of the women in my
ancestry and in my life. From them I come
and to them I go.
In loving memory of Roy (Dadayna) and
and Terri Vingerhoed.
To Amanda Hemmings, Alex Mohan and all at Pan Macmillan who welcomed me to their ranks of salubrious authors - and then waited two years for the first draft.
