A collection of fiction short stories about the issue of identity. The stories question the idea of identity on a philosophical level, as well as by what means we frame our identities, and whether is is self-formed or formed by others. A particular tension is related to issues of the Information Age, including social media such as Facebook. Influences include David Foster Wallace, Spalding Gray, Jorge Luis Borges, Tim O'Brien, Bruno Schulz, and others.
