The rave reviews just keep on coming for Marcia Butler's The Skin Above My Knee: 



“A tale of triumph over a childhood rife with abuse, yet blessed with talent. Filled with insight and honesty, [Butler’s] memoir flows like a series of gorgeous musical phrases, taking the reader on a journey as uplifting as it is disturbing  “Astonishingly, toxic parents, drugs and abusive men could never silence her greatest love: music. Her courageous memoir is a testament to the power of art to inspire and heal.”

The Washington Post



"The Skin Above My Knee is about that tension and the courage required to inhabit it. Butler's unmistakable bravery turned a traumatized girl into a world-class musician, then into a writer of memorable grace and force. You hope, while reading Butler’s transcendent words, that some of it will rub off on you."

- Simone Grace Seol    The National Book Review


"For Marcia Butler, the oboe was a protective garment and a ticket to the world, though both applications came at a steep price.... The Skin Above My Knee ultimately succeeds because it leaves readers knowing a thing or two about an esoteric world."

Meghan Daum, New York Times Book Review


“Can music save a person's life? For professional oboist Butler, the answer is yes. Her brutally honest memoir recounts the life of a woman who was able to overcome devastating emotional and physical pain, sometimes self-inflicted, thanks to the music she loved and performed. She writes lovingly and beautifully about it. The light and the dark fight it out in this fierce, fiery memoir.”

Kirkus Reviews


With unflinching honesty, Butler, a professional oboist for 25 years, recalls her love of music and how it saved her….She learned painful lessons, and shares them courageously along with her hard-earned wisdom about what to hold onto and what to let go. In the end, this is a moving account of how passion and creativity can be powerful weapons against neglect, cruelty, and self-harm.”
Publishers Weekly


“Oboist Butler’s impressive memoir, her first book, is the story of her career in, and abiding love for, music…. her imaginative prose fires the senses dramatically. Music aficionados will find an extraordinarily kindred spirit here, and lovers of memoir will find this a sensationally satisfying one.”


“Marcia Butler’s original and lyrically written memoir charts her rise from oboe prodigy to freelance professional on the international classical scene. Transportive portraits of Carnegie Hall concerts share space with memories of childhood trauma and gritty slices from 1970s New York.”
—New York Magazine
