American Moderna by Joanna McClelland Glass
Pat and Mike, an urban couple, find themselves ever more out of touch with the world in which they must live, and with ever less to hold onto and believe in. He toys with the prospect of suicide, and she with the notion of madness, as they reminisce about the events, large and small, that have brought them to where they are. Their conversation grows ever more bizarre—and revealing—as they seek to "fill the empty spaces," and to fight back, to survive, against the meaninglessness that threatens to devour them.
