Her words cut deep.
Teddy’s a world-famous playwright in the mold of David Mamet, but for the past year he’s been stuck. An assignment to write a play about Emily Dickinson should have been simple—but instead it has turned into pure obsession. Then, one night, she comes to life in his office, like magic, seducing him, torturing him, begging him to uncover the shocking secret about her life that she has woven between the lines of her text. And tonight, he’s finally figured her out.
So why is Teddy holding a loaded gun to his head?
Stumbling in and out of reality, we’ll experience the magic of Emily Dickinson’s words as they lead Teddy on a harrowing journey that will change his life . . . for eternity.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.

"Psychological . . . holds you until the end."Advanced  Review
