Abstract

A woman moves back to her hometown to try to make sense of the death of a childhood friend, fifty-years later.

This novel excerpt explores the nature of closure and questions its necessity, while also asking about the relationship between nostalgia and reality. It follows a narrator who thinks and speaks in neural pathways that we all think in, who goes on diverging thoughts and who uses connected stories that sometimes seem related, and sometimes don’t, as she tries to discover the meaning behind a traumatic childhood event.
