The Deep End: A Midwestern Guide to Mourning and Metaphysics Thesis uri icon



  • Thesis (M.F.A., English) -- University of Idaho, 2016 | This thesis is half of my memoir-in-progress about my fervent interest in mystical subjects such as astrology, synchronicity, and divination and how these inclinations have often challenged my upbringing in the American Midwest. This thesis details what happens when my undercover spiritual playmate and own guide to the universe, my mother, unexpectedly dies. Through this, I must confront my grief and my role as a daughter and a woman.
