Based on true events, Shoebox is an epistolary, poetic narrative, blending actuality with fiction, about Juliana who was adopted from Russia as an infant and who now struggles with depression, has abandonment issues, and deals with her physical hip dysplasia as well as her “familial dysplasia.” When she stumbles on a shoebox in her sister’s closet that is filled with documents concerning her adoption and letters from her family, she reminisces about the past and dreams of the future. She begins to write letters to her sister, adding to the collection of documents hidden away in the shoebox and the shoebox of her belly.
An absorbing read that juxtaposes past and present, love and lack, in language that startles.” —Rebecca Balcarcel, author of The Other Half of Happy
