Dissolve is a deeply personal, profoundly intimate reflection on love and female creativity in a man’s world, and what happens when it all collides. Having lived through the humiliation and bewildering complexity of a time of failure, Nikki Gemmell eventually resurfaced. Decades later she has written a meditation on women’s lives and creative desires.

This is a conversation. A conversation with the beautiful young women of her teenage daughter’s generation, and of course with men. With husbands and male artists.

Dissolve is a hopeful, exhilarating book about women finding their voice.
