Gival Press Novel Award 2020
When a prisoner in an unnamed labor camp finds his journal of memories taken from his cell, he sets out to console himself and perhaps find in his past a way to reclaim his freedom by again writing down what he can remember. As the prisoner writes and passes through the vivid world of a distant life, he is eventually confronted by a strange memory that, if true, questions the reliability of his memories and whether what he remembers was really his own life or, somehow, someone else's.
"A piercingly eerie, if sometimes-blurry, account of a prison sentence."
"Capturing the befuddlement of sustained imprisonment, the dystopian novel Redshift, Blueshift focuses on a man who's alone in a cell, and who becomes a prism through which to explore multiple interpretations of reality."
—Foreword Reviews, 4 Starred Review
