At seventy, Abel Haggard is a hermit, resigned to memories of the family he has lost, living in isolation on his family's farm amid the encroaching suburban sprawl of Dallas. Hundreds of miles to the south in suburban Austin, fifteen-year-old Seth Waller is devastated when his mother is diagnosed with a rare, early-onset form of Alzheimer's, and he begins an 'empirical investigation' to uncover the truth about her genetic history. Though neither one knows of the other's existence, Seth and Abel share a unique tradition: as children, both were told stories of Isadora, a fantastical land free from the sorrows of memory. Spanning continents and generations, "The Story of Forgetting" is the tale of how history can become destiny; how the imagination can transform reality; and, how loss, however devastating, can ultimately forge profound meaning. It is the story of the complexity, the pain and the bliss of forgetting.
