This book was driven through my very heart and soul. I wrote “Cause & Effect” in an effort to channel my pain and anger over the death of my 25-year-old cousin and friend, Cory. What emerged from the black hole of despair I felt about his death is this beautiful, literary drama that I believe holds some of my best writing.
Martin’s existence has centered on his wife, Sophie, for thirteen years. Their tumultuous, explosive relationship ends in adultery and her abrupt death, leaving Martin to pick up the pieces of the life she built for them — and a daughter he barely knows. With the touching insights of his little girl and memories of Sophie to keep him going, Martin navigates the year after her death in a series of lists, finding that happiness is something to create, not expect.
