Suffocating in an oversized trash bag, Prue awakes, hysterical and confused, among piles of junk. A discovered typewriter offers her company as she escapes this dump and sets out on an unknown journey to uncover why she ended up in trash yard and more importantly, why her mind remains more or less a blank.
Although young and out seeking truths, Prue's story is no bildungsroman. As she and her typewriter move through the distant and disjointed world that has spurned them, she becomes more and more disaffected, finding solace only at the shoreline of the ocean also forgotten by this world and with her clunky, broken typewriter, who although only a machine, offers her more companionship than anyone else. She thus decides to focus on the easier task of fixing her trusty, little typewriter, without realizing that this simple decision will have such serious repercussions, unwittingly guiding her to self-discovery and yielding an answer, perhaps one that's haunted her all along, but not the one she wants. What's Prue, this lone girl who clings to a clunky machine like her lifeblood, to do? Follow her and her travails across a desiccated landscape in A GIRL, A TYPEWRITER, A DYSTOPIA, a novel of 51,000 words, to find out.
