Content descriptions

Restrictions on Access Note: Digital content provided by hoopla.
Summary, etc.: Seemingly mundane events twist with an unusual presence of the unreal as the psyche of ordinary people is explored. Depression, time and thought are redefined. Alive is a collection of melancholy love stories saturated with sadness. Characters struggle to connect with one another but never quite succeed. They are essentially alone. A world that is dark and disturbing-suicide is constantly contemplated and feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and suppressed sexuality surface as identity itself becomes a terribly fragile thing.
