AUTOPSY OF A WAR intertwines two stories informed by loss and resilience. The
first narrative stages an American scholar who intends to spend a sabbatical
semester in Nice, France, to work on a novel; the pandemic and the eight-week
lockdown of Spring 2020 give her plans an unexpected turn and shape. The
second narrative — conducted in the fashion of French writer Georges Perec’s
Je me souviens — tells the story of a young French teenager who moves to the
United States after her parents and her older brother are killed in a car
crash. Both women struggle with the existential and psychological issues
raised by their exilic journeys to surrender familiar landmarks and navigate
unchartered seas.
