Trilogy is comprised of three related books that make a single work. Celestial Room is about a child’s serious illness and the fear of mortal danger. Uncreated Light is about grief, a “book of the dead”; from a family in which both the speaker’s parents and her two brothers have died, she is the only one left to speak. Labyrinth On My Table, the third book of the trilogy, is about writing and poetry and voice as the means to discovering what’s authentic in one’s life. The subject of Trilogy as a whole is voice: how work is a dialogue with self, with “otherness,” and an answer to the craving to be true to the particular vision the work itself is trying to articulate: how giving rise to this articulate voice may embody the essence of being.
