The stories, poems, and a musical piece in My Piano Hands share the author's journey to understand why she was born able to play piano by ear. Given up for adoption as a baby, the writer grew up searching for answers and wondering whether something was expected in return for her undeserved talent. This touching flash-memoir collection takes the reader sometimes wistfully, but mostly irreverently and philosophically, through a life bridging a 1950s childhood and COVID-19 adulthood pairing life's burning questions with tuna fish sandwiches, a Parisian summer, and an impractical old white sofa that knows all and reveals nothing.
