"Elena, struggling with memory loss due to a trauma that has unmoored her sense of self, deserts graduate school and a long-term relationship to accept a bizarre proposition from an estranged family friend: she will search for a young woman, Ella, who went missing six years earlier in Southeast Asia, by rewriting her journals. As she delves more deeply into Ella's story, Elena begins to lose sight of her own identity and drift dangerously toward self-annihilation. Her Here is an existential detective story with a shocking denouement that plumbs the creative and destructive powers of narrative itself"-- Provided by publisher.
