I'm Trying to Reach You

(2012)
A novel by

 
I was in Zagreb the day that Michael Jackson died. When I heard the news, the first thing I thought was, That's it. That's the first line of my novel. 'I was in Zagreb the day that Michael Jackson died."


First Michael Jackson, then Pina Bausch. Next is Merce Cunningham.


Gray Adams, a former dancer with the Royal Swiss Ballet at work on his dissertation at NYU, has a theory spurred by countless hours of YouTube-based procrastination: someone is killing these famous dancers! (And he may bear an uncanny resemblance to Jimmy Stewart, circa Vertigo.)


I'm Trying to Reach You is a moving and candid contemporary look at how we process grief, as well as how we love and communicate with one another.


In the author's consideration of gender, race, and class, she also attempts to relate what it truly means to be an American in this modern age.


Barbara Browning is the author of The Correspondence Artist. She teaches in the Performance Studies department at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She's also a poet and dancer who lives in Greenwich Village with her son.
