Summary
1970s, New York City. S.H., aka 'Minnesota' listens to Lucy through the thin walls of their building, and transcribes her neighbor's bizarre and increasingly ominous monologues in a notebook. Forty years later S.H. discovers her old notebook, as well as early drafts of a never-completed novel. Juxtaposing the texts, S.H. creates a dialogue between selves across decades, including her traumatic memory of a sexual assault; the legacy of a wild Dada artist-poet; the borders between sanity and madness; and vengeance and punishment. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
