IMPACT CRATERS is a collection of linked nonfiction essays framed around two intertwined themes: loss and discovery. At their core, these are coming of age stories. Stories about what we lose and gain as we age--friends, family, intimacy, understanding, and knowledge. Stories about social justice and lost rights. Stories about privilege and gender. Stories about death and drifting and letting go.
