Escape the end by Traci Cox( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is a collection of personal essays that span my entire life. A few concern my childhood, but most of the essays revolve around the past few years, from the ages of twenty-three to twenty-six. The collection poses questions about ideas of homecoming -- what home means, why we feel the desire to escape, and what, inevitably, brings us back. The centrifugal force behind this work is the passing of my mother, Tina, who died on April 20th 2010. Although I spent years trying to get away from Virginia, traveling to nearly two dozen countries on three continents, living for extended periods of time in Germany and Slovakia, I've always come back to where I was from. I currently live in Virginia, tethered to a teaching job and a fiancé however, in less than a year I will be escaping yet again -- south this time, to settle down in Mexico City
