Abstract:

At the outset of the 2008 financial crisis, Em has a dependable, dull marketing job generating reports of vague utility while she anxiously waits to hear news of her sister Ad, who has gone missing--again. Em's days pass drifting back and forth between her respectably cute starter house (bought with a 'responsible, salary-backed, fixed-rate mortgage') and her dreary office. Then something unthinkable, something impossible, happens and she begins to see how madness permeates everything around her while the mundane spaces she inhabits are transformed, through Lucy Corin's idiosyncratic magic, into shimmering sites of the uncanny.
