I look around me and imagine that I have the wild look of a person who has five minutes to pack her things and flee, the narrator recounts in Andrea Scrimas provocative novel, A Lesser Day. Rendered in segments circumscribed by places in which she has lived, in a narrative that is not linear, but rather flows back and forth in time, Scrimas intricately wrought story follows the life of a young woman suspended between past and present and uncertain about who she has become.
