Book: I Love You but I've Chosen Darkness: A Novel

L.A. Times: " “Darkness” is a collage of forms, what [author Claire Vaye Watkins] calls “pack rat fiction.” The first chapter is a postnatal depression questionnaire filled out with discursive irony. Letters written in the early 1970s by Claire’s mother, Martha, are allotted throughout, in reverse chronological order. The novel’s backbone is the story of Claire heading to Reno for a book event and taking nearly a year to get high and screw around and dip in hot springs and drop in on her grandma and shack up with two women in a junk-box cabin before she reunites with her husband and daughter, only to swear off convention for good." Excerpt, from Lit Hub.
