In a multi-layered and incisive narrative, Leach writes about the gaps
between reality and perception, about writing and anxiety, body and
brain, breaking and making, succeeding and failing, conventionality
The non-linear structure of Negative Space, with repeats, retakes, and
details deliberately left unsaid, mimics the gaps in memory and
understanding that are part of the human condition, especially during
times of great stress. It’s about art and writing as a fundamental way
of explaining and understanding the world, perhaps saying what
cannot be said, or revealing without showing.
Negative Space is a memoir about writing and the expression of art as
a salve and a means of escape, marriage as a refuge and a trap, the
nature of home, and what happens when everything falls apart.
