In The Disappearing Water
“…there is no limit to the extent to which we can think ourselves into the being of another. There are no bounds to the sympathetic imagination”
In The Disappearing Water is a fascinating story—dark and deep, yet full of hope and longing. There is much in life that is beyond rational comprehension. Mystery resounds in silence like a solitary snow angel, the displacement of water in a bathtub, a still life image and life that refuses to be stilled—cannot be packed away, domesticated or slaughtered. Love, perhaps the greatest mystery, with its comings and goings on, is carried like a bucket of stones, close to the chest, and passed along. Caroline Sulzer takes her readers to captivating places that may be hauntingly familiar, yet surprisingly other.
