Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

One and Half of You is a poetic memoir by a talented multidisciplinary artist, musician, and writer. This hybrid work, which will extend to a musical component, begins with the author's growing up biracial on rural Vancouver Island. Not fitting in at school, she turns for comfort to her brother, who is in many ways the opposite of her, rejecting the biracial heritage the author begins tentatively to explore. Only when she moves from the island to the mainland does she meet another like her. In sinuous language, with risk, honesty, and surprising humour, Dunic explores sibling and romantic love and the complexities of being a biracial person looking for completion in another.
