The Memory Game

Catherine Chidgey / Rachel Khong

  • About

    In her found novel, The Beat of the Pendulum, Catherine Chidgey chronicles a year of her life through the language she encountered daily. In Goodbye, Vitamin, Rachel Khong tells the story of a young woman who returns home to help care for her father, recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. In very different ways, these two novels explore family, friendship and memory.
