A Disappearance in Two Parts
A writer receives a postcard from his brother of an arcane map of the state of Oklahoma, which propels him on an investigation into a series of disappearances from history, including one in his own family. The writer explores forgotten histories, memory, and the difficulties of documenting the past.
