‘When you are a writer and a sore little piece of yourself breaks off and crystallises, you name it and you write a world for it and it becomes a story…’

 In 2005, Emma Marie Jones lost her beloved younger sister. In Something to Be Tiptoed Around, Emma creates a powerful, multi-layered exploration of the fate of human love after death. Mixing memoir and fictocriticism, the novel unravels the sinuous complexities of grief, loss, memory and femininity.

Drawing on elements of Greek mythology and literary theory in ways that are surprising and imaginative, Something To Be Tiptoed Around is both deeply affecting and utterly human.
