"Shadow Child" is the heartbreaking story of a father's love for his child. After his little girl dies in infancy, P. F. Thomese finds himself in deathly silent rooms, desperately seeking the words to express his desolation. His only hope is to write truly, without sentimentality, to learn to speak again. 'If she still exists anywhere, then it's in language.' As he looks back, describing and reliving snapshots of memory, Thomese struggles to find meaning in a life that has been devastated. It is a breathtaking tribute to a deceased daughter, an expression of love, an elegy, and ultimately a declaration of hope.
