Abstract
  • This collection of loosely-linked stories explores the lives of a set of characters who exist in the margins of society, but quietly so. In the opening story, "Two-Minute Histories," an ostensibly negative act—breaking and entering, among other verifiable crimes—is demonstrated to lead to some positive outcome such as a moment of clarity or insight. This is a recurring element in most of the stories in the collection. My characters can get away with these acts because, in their narrative worlds, they exist in the margins of notice: the negative acts represent the unnoticed other crying out for notice, perhaps; but simultaneously, the acts serve a liberating function: there is a certain freedom associated with existing in the margins.
