AN IMPENETRABLE SCREEN OF PUREST SKY
Daniel is pursued by stories. His father, in thrall to a myth, has disappeared; his mother and sister, too; and Lydia, his lover, leaves him and the novel he cannot finish for quantum mechanics, the place where theory tells tales about the real. And then there is Pearl, the girl beneath the floorboards, whose adventures hum alongside Daniel's own.
In this contemporary, contemplative fairy tale, the autobiographical novel takes on the cast of legend, and the uncertainty of memory leaves reality on shaky ground. Can parallel universes exist? Can a preoccupation with Moby Dick overwhelm the story unfolding before you? Where do you stand in relation to the metaphysics of your own life?
Dan Beachy-Quick is the author of five books of poetry, most recently "Circle's Apprentice"; two books of prose, "A Whaler's Dictionary" and "Wonderful Investigations"; as well as a number of chapbooks and two collaborations, "Conversities" (with Srikanth Reddy) and "Work from Memory" (with Matthew Goulish). He teaches in the MFA program at Colorado State University, and lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with his wife and two daughters.
