Synopsis: It’s been three years since the death of her husband and twin sons, and everyone believes that Ronnie is getting better, that she’s taking her medicine, and that she’s listening, but she struggles to disentangle herself from the past, to know when her memories end and reality begins. When she meets George, Ronnie hopes he can somehow save her, that she can learn to save herself, but there’s a bird in her head and claws in her chest; the past is pulling her under and she may never resurface.
Review: CLICK is a stream-of-consciousness type story of one woman’s grief and descent into madness. CLICK both is resonant and discordant at the same time, haunting the reader with the images and sounds. There aren’t really breaks in the story and it leaves you with the urge to finish it in one sitting. CLICK isn’t for the faint of heart because of the ease into which you can get pulled into Ronnie’s brilliant and disturbing madness. The writing is graceful and deceptively simple, but will wind its way into your mind and soul.
