Adrift, by Kristy Peloquin
Adrift is an exploration of trauma and a quest for transcendence. Between broken souls, broken homes, and frustrating socio-political circumstances, Peloquin asks us to see these experiences not as disparate elements, but as part of a whole. Here, in this place, with this stirring narrator, memory and reality feed off one another, creating a world of inconstancy that can only be soothed by dreams of escape.
