Nowhere to be found is a book about the frozen feelings, where the cold is a recurring adjective. A mother is too abashed to give dinner to her son and the narrator’s attempts to deliver it to him turn into a nightmare shaggy-dog story, in which she travels through an expressionist landscape punctuated with disturbing images. For her existence is a loosely woven tapestry of fleeting concepts. Time and identity blur. Searching for meaning and connection in experiences she barely feels, a nameless narrator passes through her life. She can’t understand, what motivates others to take life seriously enough to focus on anything. From losing her virginity to mindless jobs and a splintered, unsupportive family. The lessons learned have less to do with the reality, we all share and more to do with the truth of the imagination, which is where the narrator focuses to discover herself.
