Read this riveting review of An Instrument for Leaving by Lindsay Merbaum. The review in itself is a beautiful piece written by a very talented writer.
While this happened a few months ago, I still wanted to share this very thoughtful review by Brandon James Anderson. He also interviewed me about my writing process, influences and the book. The full interview will be published in the Old Northwest Review this fall. In the meantime, a preview of our conversation can be found here.
“The common myth about the past is that it’s over. It’s not. It’s open to reinterpretation. Past as putty, to shape as one chooses. Roll it back into a ball and pose it again. And again.” – Gaughan
Patrick Gaughan reviews my book and wonders how many flights there are over the Atlantic on a given day.
Beautiful and insightful piece of writing on memory, home, Proust, and An Instrument.
