"The Myth Belongs to Me" is a novel in progress. This contemporary story follows an unnamed female protagonist engaged in a romantic grift with the woman who now occupies her childhood home. Meanwhile, our narrator's deranged sister has resurfaced, exhuming past traumas and family secrets that cross time, place, and generations. Told in the first person, "The Myth Belongs to Me" traverses pop culture, gentrification, and biracial and queer identity--all the while considering the ways in which history repeats itself.
