A BOLDLY CANDID, RAW PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG WOMAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING AND PURPOSE IN AN INDIFFERENT WORLd
Decisively aimless, self-destructive, and impulsively in and out of love, Elsie is a young woman who feels stuck. She’s in a tumultuous relationship, is stuck at a dead-end job at a newspaper, and has a relentless, sharp intelligence that’s at odds with her many bad decisions. When her initial attempts to improve her life go awry, Elsie decides that a dramatic change is the only solution.
While traveling through Paris and Sri Lanka, Elsie meets people who challenge and provoke her toward the change she is seeking. But in the end, she must still come face-to-face with herself.
Whole-hearted, fiercely honest, and inexorably human, Wreck and Order is a stirring debut that, in mirroring one young woman’s dizzying quest for answers, illuminates the important questions that drive us all.
