In this multi-disciplinary book, bestselling novelist Silas House takes us through the process of storytelling in its many different forms. This book includes Houses moving short story An Unsent Letter, and the play, The Hurting Part, that was based on the same family tale and is available in print here for the first time. Both are about one pivotal winter in the lives of Thelma and Simeon Smallwood. Faced with a gnawing homesickness that leads to emotional explosions both quiet and fierce, An Unsent Letter and The Hurting Part reveal that desire which joins us all: the need for a home among people we cherish. Two additional pieces a revealing essay about process and an enlightening interview with the author complete this collection that is not only an exploration of different disciplines but also an insightful and original tool for anyone interested in the craft of writing. Theres good advice here, too, for anyone who simply wants to know how to go through life with what House calls a fully conscious heart.
