The Darcy Song and Other Stories
MetadataShow full item record
The Darcy Song and Other Stories brings into focus a series of characters who find themselves in awkward, desperate points in their lives as a result of various brands of loss. They have each suffered a loss on some level: a friend, family member, or childhood and each attempts to grasp an understanding of his or her role in this loss and where to go from this point in their lives. The stories span a character's path to awareness not necessarily of how the loss occurred, but of how to move beyond his or her specific void. Some are stuck in a rut of unchallenged acceptance, while others are obsessed with changing everything except what needs to change in order to move on.
