Blankets is a memoir written in fragments, an unusual non-linear narrative that the author uses to collapse time into contemplative patches, surprisingly stitched and threaded by an affection for and memories associated with blankets. Pivotal moments and minor incidents convey experiences of coming-of-age in an Evangelical Christian community, struggling with mental illness and an eventual diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, and coping with a young husband’s unexpected stage four lung cancer. Framed by the loss of a mother, the fragments explore death and grief, love, and family, and engage the reader in the challenge of leaping across white space to build connections and associations between fragments. A reader should consider their own experiences as well as their own relationship of memories to objects. Dynamic, lyrical prose combined with collages of blankets and photos work together to provide an immersive experience of the memoir.
