dc.description.abstract'How To Disappear Completely (And Never Be Found)' is a collection of six short stories that explore the theme of disappearance. The disappearance in each story works as a metaphor for the character's condition : the failure to act upon a definitive moment, the realization that everything is about to be lost, the inability to reverse an action. Another important theme that emerges is the way in which children are the unwitting victims of these characters' failures. How To Disappear Completely (And Never Be Found) uses a variety of narrative styles, from magic realism to fragmentation of stories within stories, as means of rendering the subjective reality of the characters in each story,en_US
