Summary:
Autumn is a short story cycle set in contemporary times, primarily in a South Florida village, using the viewpoints of two main characters: Angie Frisby and Chatov Faulke. It offers an example of the short story cycle through repeated and developed characters, recurring themes, imagery, setting, and shifting points of view. It will employ closure strategies that present an image of the future for both Angie and Chat, implying continuation of the story and/or characters, and how they might go down a multiplicity of different roads. In its desire to remain ambiguous, the conflicts surrounding Angie's and Chat's relationship will never fully be solved, just presented accurately through their perception; an antithesis will be created through their ongoing thoughts of present conflict and juxtaposition of life and death, separation and reunion, the harmony of the natural world and the disharmony of their internal ones.
