The Great God Pan by Amy Herzog

Jamie’s life in Brooklyn seemed just fine—a beautiful girlfriend, a budding journalism career, and parents who live just far enough away.  But when a possible childhood trauma comes to light, lives are thrown into chaos. Jamie discovers what is lost and won when a hidden truth is unloosed into his world. How does someone make sense of a traumatic past that cannot be remembered?  “Within its fascinating parade of alternate possibilities, Herzog has packed a set of big, beautiful, perpetually troubling questions, moral and philosophical. The work is tiny, but it runs deep.” —Village Voice.
