“Aisling Raphael Marray was born in 1902 on a small farm in Suffolk, England. She lived a relatively normal rural life, working on the family land, until one autumn day at the age of eighteen, on a routine trip to London to sell produce, she was exposed to jazz. Utterly intoxicated, she bid farewell to her pastoral life and secured working passage on a steam ship to the United States. Having attended the bare minimum of school in England, as her parents needed her on the farm, New York surprisingly sparked a previously undiscovered urge to write. Marray immersed herself in her new home, writing almost constantly - apparently inspired by the chaos and opulence of the Jazz Age. However, her career was cut tragically short, as a mere two years after she arrived in New York, she was found dead in the swimming pool of a house known to be a front for a notorious speakeasy, her lungs filled with champagne. Her stories were discovered in a shoe box under the bed in the room she rented, tied with string and addressed to her parents’ farm back home.”
