Title: A geography of the heart
Author: Tascio, Elizabeth Anne
Date: 2012-06-18
Publisher: University of Missouri--Kansas City
Abstract: This collection of short fiction and creative nonfiction explores how we navigate our most intimate and challenging personal relationships, how we use art and writing to try to understand and articulate the most ineffable struggles of the heart, and the many ways we fail in both of these efforts--and why we persist, full of hope. As a whole, the collection investigates the successes and frustrations inherent in our attempts to understand and care for one another, and in our attempts to protect ourselves from each other, whether we are lovers, family members, siblings, students and teachers, strangers, or friends. Art and writing make up an incomplete and ever-changing map of human experience, and they are also what we leave behind to illuminate at least part of that wide open sea for future travelers.
