In the novel-in-progress THE ASTERISMS, a family attempts to escape the biases of their white, suburban life. After a miscarriage, Grace, a 40-year-old anesthesiologist, must decide for herself whether to try to have another child. Her grief-stricken husband Chuck becomes possessed by an imaginary friend he calls The Reckless, who forces him to steal a rare and extremely expensive model of Wonder Woman's airplane. Grace's two teenagers flee the stress of their insular family bubble, leading them into intrigues with Bosnian art saboteurs and rapture-obsessed veterinarians. Amidst this chaos, and in the context of her increasing political awareness, Grace must find a way to integrate her own desires with familial and cultural constraints.
While The Asterisms will primarily take shape in the print universe, some sections of the novel will only be available in various digital forms. This page functions as the runway for those sections.
