About the Book

“It’s difficult to hold on to the present when your mind is peeling away like the layers of an onion.” A man suffering from aminesis — the death of memory — tells the story of his mind-melting descent into mental illness.

The winner of the 15th Annual 3-Day Novel Contest is an impressionistic, finely-wrought tale of lost memory, tangled history, despair and discovery.
