A Memory of Wind

A Memory of Wind - Rachel Swirsky,  Sam Weber Poetic retelling of Iphigenia at Aulis. The vivid sensory detail fades as the novella progresses, but that may be less an inability to sustain, and more intentional depiction of flesh and blood girl dissolving into spirit wind. Swirsky circles back again and again to two key familial moments in Iphigenia's life, fleshing out the memories a little at a time to emotionally coincide with the story's climax.
