Bob Shacochis on Time

Most recently the author of acclaimed novel The Woman Who Lost Her Soul, which spans four decades, Shacochis will delineate time for the Word Works audience in a way that turns the task of employing narrative time from daunting to exciting.

“And when history swirls around you and passes on and you inhale its aftermath, the bitterness of its ashes and the bygone sweetness of time, and excrete history into memory, you never quite believe you had once heard its thunderous God-like whispering, that you had trembled in the face of its terrible intimacies, and you fell silent.”

—     The Woman Who Lost Her Soul (Atlantic Monthly Press), Bob Shacochis
