Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments 
Chapter: In a Moment of Tenderness the Future Seems Possible pg. 156

“The narrative is disjunctive. The story is in fragments. The chain of cause and affect goes awry. It is impossible to be confident about what happens and what is imagined. The whole story is unbelievable so its hard to reconstruct the chain of events. Dream and flashback thwart the attempt to order time into tidy categories of past, present and future. The story advances and stumbles in uncertainty. So the account of the romance is necessarily speculative. The threat of ruin hangs over the head of the right couple. It is all just a waking nightmare? Is there an alternative scenario, a parallel track where they live happily ever after? Where invention is capable of sustaining love?”
