“God Grante That She Lye Stille,” Cynthia Asquith, 1947

“God Grante That She Lye Stille,” Cynthia Asquith, 1947 – A ghost story.

Comments: Not sf, but remarkable passages about the mutability of identity, a vacant self, the body as a vessel, and a female narrator referring to herself as if she were a text, observing that her family used to “edit” her. Read in The Venus Factor.

Author: Wikipedia: “Lady Cynthia Mary Evelyn Asquith (1887 – 31 March 1960) was an English writer, now known for her ghost stories and diaries. She also wrote novels and edited a number of anthologies, as well as writing for children and on the British Royal family.”
