Abstract:

A fictive weeklong journey inside the head of Ramble, a London woman quietly going crazy. Handicapped, partially deaf Ramble provides first-person narration that careens from her thoughts on photocopying pound notes to her grandmother's childhood to 1840s Stamp Office clerks with barely a breath. When husband Con calls her an autistic vampire and takes off with the petty criminal living downstairs, Ramble comes unglued, and the narrative goes along with her.
