The Convalescent (2009)
Jessica Anthony
"Jessica Anthony has given a voice - wry, sad, and arresting - to the wounded little homunculus that lives, largely ignored, in all of us, a creature that wrestles with a guilt and grief that is as historical as it is personal. The Convalescent is a melancholy delight."
