This strange novel is filled with symbolism and imagery, painted in the bright flowing colors of a twisted imagination. It holds five dark tales, each dissimilar from the next. These stories will make you ponder, keep you guessing, and leave you yearning for more. Nested narratives push the limits of form in this collection of stories.
Enter a cruel "palindrome" world: a symmetric place where disturbing situations displace the common; where good acts transmute to evil ones. Within, characters influence each other through macabre arrangements of involuntary happenstance, and learn the inevitabilities of coincidence.
A segmented story of a mother and daughter intertwines the others. This hidden sixth story, told in reverse and assembled from the five separate narratives, uncovers the sad life of a child who carries a palindrome name, and her struggling teenage mother. With five stories heading one direction, and Hannah traveling the opposite, the story unfolds like the meaning hidden in a palindrome.About the Author:
