FOMITE

Summary:

​

“All of these random memories sped through Elle’s brain like minnows through a warm shallow, each jot of recollection a tiny fish, living for just a few seconds before gobbled by some larger, more predatory entity—the rattle of the stove as it demanded more cedar or the rumble in her empty stomach.”

​

Stillpoint tells the story of a single day in the life of an older woman living alone with her books and memories in a small New Mexico town. A widow, Elle fills her days with work—translating the poems of the great Italian romantic Giacomo Leopardi —and with reflecting on her life as a daughter, a wife, and a mother. How, Elle wonders, do we put into words the truths of our life; how do we find peace in solitude?
