What do you do, moving through the fraught transition into adulthood, when the only unified world you've ever known breaks apart and you have to do something magical and quick before its fragments vanish forever? Composed as a novella, The Ballad of Sara and Thor is at once a morality tale, murder story, and psychological true-detective exploration of the motivations and implications behind the violent death of a beautiful young woman. Set on the outskirts of a picturesque liberal arts college, Andrew McCarron recounts the unsettling realities of a teen romance that takes an irredeemable turn into darkness, confusion, and horror--and a college community's attempt to make sense of the event, in order to bury it and move on, and this writer's reckoning with the unspeakable, in order to bear witness.
