Tracy, who compulsively repeats familiar feminine tragedies, moves from one disastrous love affair to the next, almost oblivious to the cities in which she finds herself-London, Berlin, Ankara, New York-and even to the objects of her passion. Without Falling charts a woman's quest for an impossible sexual identity. Family melodrama, self mutilation, and the active pursuit of rejection are presented as perverse pleasure, somewhere between the indulgence of tears, the squirm of embarrassment, and a shriek of reluctant laughter.
