Abstract or Summary
  • The four stories and one essay within are linked by themes: love, sex, truth, and music. Three of the stories are told by first person narrators who are also musicians. In "Elementary Music," a young girl views her parents' divorce through the lens of an orchestra concert in which she participates. In "Laying on of Hands," a woman contemplates abandoning music for an imagined love, and in "I Say All That to Say This," a woman finds herself in love with her pianist, substituting music for sex. In all of these stories music and the act of performance prompt questions about love and truth. The essay, "Unsayable Life," addresses questions about the differences between fiction and life, between living a story and later fashioning it into art, or artifice. "Grammar is Life" is a direct response to those questions, featuring a protagonist who tries to gain control over her fear of loneliness and the future by fashioning her life into grammar lessons. All of these stories deal with loss on some level; music and the search for truth in fiction--in art--act as counterpoint against that loss.
