Whipping the Dead tells the dream-like story of a young girl, her Japanese poetry, and her 1991 Dodge Cargo Van in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where she discovers a home where the dead are held captive. It’s a tribute to memory (Hence the Greek goddess, Mnemosyne) formulated after the Fibonacci sequence. Each “But” interrupting sentence follows a number of paragraphs increasing according to the sequence, a bit like a prose-style Villanelle gone overly mathematical. Pick up a copy on Amazon.
