Some things that stay there be. Emily Dickinson, The Secret. We traveled three hundred miles today, and five hundred miles yesterday, pulling behind us a small humpbacked metal trailer that wobbles and slows us down. My father would be happy without that trailer, but he needs it to haul his canvases and art supplies, allowing us the rest of the space inside for our things as an afterthought. Oh, I suppose we need clothes, he will mutter, as we load in our cardboard boxes filled with my mother’s encyclopedias, my brother’s comics, my sister’s stuffed animals, my record player and 45’s.

Some Things That Stay is a novel that focuses mostly on all that is ephemeral about life. Thus the central metaphor of this work is embedded in the wanderings of a peripatetic family of five which relocates annually so as to accommodate the father who paints landscapes and is constantly in need of fresh subject matter and inspiration. And so her removal provides the impetus for tremendous psychological change and development. If the novel at one level is about how vulnerable people are to the vagaries of fate, it is also concerned with what is enduring in the lives of its characters.
