By Leslie Ayvazian 

Julia enters a room intending to write.  Instead of picking up a pen and paper, she plays solitaire.  She talks out loud.  She conjures up scenes with her mother, Rosemary, a singer; her mother’s accompanist; and her father.  To create her story, to find her voice, she orchestrates, fantasizes and examines her past.  She discovers “the points can be subtle…but they’re true, and they’re honest and they’re larger than the experience itself.”
