This is a book-length work of memoir/creative non-fiction focused around my father’s sudden death and the resulting effects, direct and indirect, on my family and myself. To borrow the disclaimer Maggie Nelson makes at the beginning of her book, The Red Parts:
“This book is a memoir, which is to say that it relies on my memory and consists primarily of my personal interpretations of events and, where indicated, my imaginative recreation of them. Conversations and other events have been recreated to evoke the substance of what was said or what occurred, but are not intended to be perfect representations.”
