2011 Gassner Award Winner

In A Word
by Lauren Yee

Two years have passed since Fiona’s seven-year-old son mysteriously vanished. As Fiona goes back over the events she remembers leading up to that fateful day, logic buckles and language breaks. Will she uncover the truth and what happens if she does? A lyrical, absurdist journey on how to get over, get around, get through what haunts you.
