Abstract:

"In her innovative, daring essay collection, Dear Sound of Footstep, Ashley Butler engages the reader in an exploration of her mother's death and estranged paternal relationship. As illusions of a celestial umbrella slowly disappear, she begins a search for answers within the infinite. The candid narrative evolves into a stunning, abstract deconstruction of time and space, piloting the reader precariously close to the unanswered question, "Why are we here?" Among the subjects she touches on: the fastest man on earth, wind farms and tunnels, and the anechoic (without echo) chamber at Harvard University. We hear about some of history's oddest seekers of spiritual and scientific knowledge: Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the father of cosmonautics; Yves Klein, the "artist of space"; Russian futurist Nikolai Federov; and Houdini, hanging headfirst over a crowd in Times Square. The essays are a blend of conventional narrative, aphorism (The aphorism is a form of eternity, said Nietzsche), lyrical imagery, and language."--Jacket.
