This new book is about what happened as Aspen was writing “Girl in the Woods” and picks up where it left off. Aspen and her new husband migrate to New York City, so that she can follow her dream of becoming a writer. She finds their frugal life endearing and their marriage seems like any other until one day Justin gives her a kiss before heading out to attend a friend’s funeral and never returns. Aspen chronicles her struggles writing a book on deadline where it’s “hero” is now missing (she starts drinking heavily, has no money, she eventually lands in the hospital after spending 119 consecutive hours awake, etc.) and exposes the seduction of playing the victim. It’s a poetic and probing inquiry into the nature of marriage and family, as well as a story of creative awakening.
