If this semi-autobiographical story were put into near chronological order it would go something like this: A girl marries her boyfriend on a whim so that she can join him on a long nautical adventure. It is not a sea faring tale, but one about what comes after, the consequences of this rash decision. When they return from their voyage reservations develop about the validity of their new roles, which are compounded by seeing an ex-boyfriend that is still embedded in her desires. She becomes absorbed in the pain of letting go of what she wants to want, but doesn’t. All of her connections to people have gaps that she cannot bridge. She reflects on past events that can only lamely be described as romances. Her familial history emerges continuously pouring weight into her already sinking shoes. After the divorce, the girl relocates to a small town on an island, a place she associates with previous catharsis. It is still and beautiful, but the distractions are overwhelming. There is unease in this placidity. She develops physical sensations of loss-the ailments that accompany a broken heart. Attempts to metamorphose are confronted by immutability. This Xeric-award winning graphic novel is a numbered edition of 1000.
