Jennifer Lane will present an excerpt from her latest draft of Harlowe. Read on to learn more about Jenny and her work!
After a tragedy, Harlowe returns to her childhood home to the ostensibly comforting arms of her father, sister, brother, and high school flame. Only problem is, she can’t feel a thing. Looking out at her life through the enveloping waters of her bathtub, Harlowe struggles to find her place and peace.
“I guess I always just felt like a passenger inside myself, like my body was just how I transported my consciousness from place to place.” – Harlowe from Harlowe
