Fiction. Winner of the 2015 Noemi Press Fiction Award. UNCOUNTRY: A MYTHOLOGY is a collection of narratives that aim to expand creative pathways into historical space, particularly histories of migration and displacement. It is divided into four Histories: Ash, Breath, Hunger and Blood. The four Histories explore the gaps between "remembered" official history and the more unreliable spaces of private memory and unspoken unofficial history. The storylines re contextualize and re imagine content from mythic spaces, such as German folktales and Eastern European Jewish lore, historical narratives as well as anecdotes from oral family memory. UNCOUNTRY furthermore explores the notion of invisible landscapes; an accumulation of stories, memories, dreams and desires, over layering the visible place: a record of the human, animal and geographical history that we move through.
