Abstract

This fiction is a phenomenological account of generational memory and change. Special attention is paid to biological New York City and Long Island.

[LANDING POINTS concerns the creative conscience of a middle-aged notary supplies salesman. He looks in on himself through the layered experiences offered by his position in time and space. Set roughly in the future on the South Shore of Long Island, beaches as well as more central locations, Queens, and Berlin, his odyssey takes the reader through a series of memories endlessly infused with desire to establish limits on the writing of the self.]
