Elizabeth Ellen (canceled)


A novel/’autofiction’ about the complexities of being a woman, an artist, a mother, and a wife; a novel about persona and obsession and loyalty and repression; an exorcism. Told in four volumes over seven years, with emails, g-chats, and an “interview” with Lydia Davis (and a nod to Ms. Davis’s “The End of the Story”), the style of Person/a is often experimental, pushing the boundaries between fiction and nonfiction, obsession and mental instability, female independence and a loyalty to current and former lovers, but with the ultimate loyalty being to oneself or one’s writing, and is there a difference? and should we be ashamed?
