The Blood Records : Written and Annotated
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

Blood Records is an experimental narrative work which focuses on the interior life of Marie, a young girl coming of age while confined to a tuberculosis sanatorium in rural Saskatchewan, during the summer of 1944. As the rebellious girl's recovery is threatened by a relapse, the story traces her profound descent into her own interiority - an unpredictable and rich stew of embroidered recollections, elaborate hallucinations and outrageous opinion - all fired by adolescent anger, and a sincere desire to gain some experience as quickly as possible.
