Fiction. In the space of relation, Mary Burger offers a new kind of writing--a testimony that cannot be defended or deflected. SONNY, a series of speech acts, a hypnotic set of patterned particulars, constructs with the awareness that language demands that we should see what's there and what is possible. Moving between the individual and the collective, attaching a kind of present-making to the space of dissolution found there, SONNY shows us a way to make new resemblances and new subjectivities out of what we've lost. This work of innovative prose forms and reforms itself into a history that remembers, that recalls and that echoes the desire of the narrator to replace the story with itself.
