Alice

Alice is forced by circumstances beyond her control to care for her aging, bitter mother. Her only escape comes from reading travel books and imagining that she has left her unhappy home behind and journeyed to lands far away.

She devours the books — literally. But bit by bit, the pages are disappearing and she knows that someday, her escape route will be forever gone. Then what will she do?

She heard the words as though they came from a great distance, not just the floor below. But instead of responding, she kept on chewing, tearing off more bits to slip into her mouth and onto her tongue. “Cairo… Alexandria… Mozambique… Tangiers…”
