9781626527591: Silkie: World One, World Two: a novel

When Professor Stephen Mollgaard's world splits in two, will his new student lead him to Truth or madness? An eagle in a box. A cryptic report of a student's death. And Silkie. For Professor Stephen Mollgaard these are the trappings of World Two. It pushes against World One: the mundane world of student papers, professional expectations, and Catholic school catechism. A perennial misfit, Stephen has spent his life wondering which world is his. Afflicted by a vision of a godless, random universe, he teeters on the edge of World Two. When Silkie shows up demanding to be let into his class, Stephen finds himself both captivated and off-balance. A homeless, twenty-three-year-old schizoaffective, Silkie is unpredictable, and her writing is full of fantastical tales that Stephen can't forget. She invites him into her six-year-old daughter's life and injects herself into his. Even as he begins to comprehend Silkie, however, she disappears - Stephen is determined to find her.

Review:

David Rothgery's novel, Silkie, is one of the best pieces of contemporary writing that we have read in the past few years. . . . [T]his narrative he has constructed is, quite simply, utterly captivating. Silkie does not shy away from the ugliness, cruelness, or confusion that our modern world breeds. Instead it seeks to remind us that all it takes is one thing, no matter how small, to completely transform us.
Red City Review  [5 stars out of 5]
