Alone in a Room Together: Stories I Want to Tell You
Alone in a Room Together is a collection of original short fiction and nonfiction. Each piece, like each character, is independent, but linked thematically to the rest of the collection through isolation, grief, and obsession. The characters presented deal with events as seminal as unrequited love and the deaths of family members, finding the most difficult part of loss to be the failure to connect to and communicate with even their closest confidants. As a line is drawn between what is said and what is unsaid, these stories attempt to present a simple truth: all people, no matter how much they are loved or surrounded by others, go through the world alone.
