In Color is a collection of shorts, poems, and essays in which the author explores her identity, as well as her past experience and imagined future. While the document consists chiefly of nonfiction, the narratives contained within are based on faulty memory and the author’s imagination, and therefore, like all nonfiction, are purely speculative. The author presents a cohesive document in which form and content are hybrid in nature to reflect the impossibility of neat categorization, and the impossibility of cataloguing identity, which she has nonetheless attempted to do. In many ways, this collection is a failure. It could be no other way.
