  • Epigraph: The novel retells again and again the story of the person who is marooned on some kind of island metaphor and who comes upon the tracks of another self. But always it is the story of the isolated self seeking to transcend its isolation by becoming the other, the other self, through communication of the subjective reality of the self. When we were children we all asked someone close to us the awesome question, What is it really like to be you? - Alex Miller, Chasing My Tale (p. 6)
