The Nature of Stammering 09/08/22
City girl Rebecca, spending the summer in a remote East Anglian seaside village, encounters Ferelith, a Goth who lives in a commune. The third character is an eighteenth-century parson who is drawn into bizarre scientific experimentation with the moment of death.
Each character's story is told in third person, personal narration and diary entries respectively, as their experiences coalesce, and the unsettling denouement is reached. Readers are left to wonder whether all this is a figment of Rebecca's own mental strife, the result of personal loss and encroaching depression.
