Abstract

For my thesis I took a look at my personal experiences and decided to turn my memories into stories that revolve around one event: my father’s death. It’s a subject I rarely, if ever, talk about—so why eighteen years later would I decide to write about it? What did I hope to gain from the experience? Simply put, I wanted to reconnect with my dad as an adult and address how his death played a role in who I am today. With those goals in mind I separated it into four sections separated thematically: acceptance, love, childhood, and questions.
