MARASMUS

A Novel-In-Progress

 

An elegiac tale of old bones breaking free. Told for the preservation of roots and for the honoring of children. 

 

Inspired by a "disputed" series of events unearthed at abbey sites and church-run workhouses for unwed mothers: mass graves containing the countless remains of undocumented children.

 

Re-envisioned, the dead given voice.
