The Sound of Undoing: A Memoir in Essays deconstructs the way sound has overwhelmingly shaped the author’s life. Experimental in form and provocative in content, this lyrical book uses research on silence, nature and noise pollution, sound art, autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) and the acoustic environment in general.

"This book gifted me a deeper awareness of noise--its powers to depress or delight, estrange or connect. . . .Part anguished lament, part rapturous ode, Paige Towers has given us a portrait of overwhelming sensation."--Gabrielle Bates, author of Judas Goat
