In 1899, the streets of New York were as unsettled as the heart and mind of Mary Jane Elmer. The ideas of the transcendentalists were still in the air, and thoughts of a second revolution were rising. Emma Goldman spoke to ever-growing numbers of the disenfranchised in Union Square and scandalized the city fathers. Police used horses, clubs and bullets to disperse the crowds. Women were redefining their roles for the coming century. And, near the middle of life, solitary in her marriage to an intractable and distant artist, and still grieving the death of their daughter ten years earlier, Mary struggles to shape a future she can endure.

Derived from the lives of real people, this beautiful novel is a whirlwind of history, art, familial tremors, and personal desire. But beyond its elegance, beyond its historical authenticity, Every Past Thing is an intimate and moving family portrait—and its every brushstroke is marked with longing.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

In This masterful debut, Pamela Thompson reveals the pain and desire of one woman, the wife of 19th Century painter, Edwin Romanzon Elmer, as she searches for her lovers in New York City over five days of wishes and regrets in November 1899.
When your heart is broken, every past thing becomes strange.
In 1899, the streets of New York were as unsettled as the heart and body of Mary Jane Elmer. The ideas of the transcendentalists had taken root, and thoughts of a second revolution were rising. Emma Goldman spoke to ever-growing numbers of the disenfranchised in Union Square and scandalized the city fathers. Police used horses, clubs and bullets to disperse the crowds. Women were redefining their roles for the coming century. And, at 40 years of age, solitary in marriage to a brilliant and talented man and still grieving the death of their daughter ten years past, Mary tries her best to find a future she can endure.
Writing in a voice that is filled with longing, Thompson captures an emotional whirlwind of art, politics, family, and desire with an authenticity that is absolutely breathtaking. Every Past Thing is an enduring novel, as personal as it is historic.
