A teacher asked me a question, andI opened my mouth as a sort of formality but closed it softly, knowing withperfect certainty that nothing would ever come out again. Ruby givesup talking at a young age. Her mother isn’t always there to notice; she comesand goes and goes and comes, until, one day, she doesn’t. Silence becomesRuby’s refuge, sheltering her from the weather of her mother’s mental illnessand a pressurized suburban atmosphere. Plangent,deft, and sparkling with wry humour, SomebodyLoves You is a moving exploration of how we choose or refuse to tell thestories that shape us.
