Abstract

Sketch is a fictional novella that explores themes of love, absence, sexual violence, and coincidence. It is a result of two years of extensive writing as a Michener fellow at the University of Miami, and is my first attempt at a longer work. Though a few of the character names are slightly fantastical, the story is firmly rooted in New York City, and the characters themselves are realistic.
