Fiction. An actress of sorts, a woman recalls her childhood, longs for her absent lover, imagines traveling overseas, and wanders through gardens and galleries of art. Hers is a life meticulously lived, a carefully crafted and rehearsed engagement with a real and imagined world; a search for love and meaning that has left her, in the end, alone. Unrue's intricate and intriguing sentences--now one word, now comprising whole paragraphs and interrupting one another--manage to fuse detachment and emotion, heartbreak and humor.
