Fiction. Epistolary. Memoir. Disability Studies. THE BOOK OF SCAB is a lyrical, epistolary fiction/memoir written from the disabled artifact's perspective, unraveling the abjection of youth and its post-Freudian family myths. It takes embodied place during the slow decline of white supremacist heteronormative corporate oligarchy. Scab is a chronically ill teenage girl, through whom all the most toxic and beautiful elements of a culture flow. Her letters are essays, manifestos, and diary entries. The arc of the project follows Scab as she works to escape her abusive, bourgeois parents (culture)--an escape that must be both physical and psychic, and is probably doomed from the outset. THE BOOK OF SCAB opens at a psychedelic music festival and ends in the room where beauty's mask was worn.
