FORGET HOW YOU FOUND US (15 Views of Orlando Vol. III)
Edited by Nathan Holic
Publisher: Burrow Press
Release Date: June 2014
Forget How You Found Us is a loosely linked literary portrait of Orlando, FL as told by the city’s best writers. The stories within follow Olivia and Sabrina, two teenage sisters brand new to the “golf course community” of Lake Nona. Olivia is tired of living in the shadow of her older sister’s rebellion. Since the move, their only communication has been through notes and poems written in each other’s journals. But when Sabrina runs away from home, and Olivia’s only friend mysteriously disappears, a sequence of strange events follow both sisters, as well as a peripheral cast of characters that includes the distraught mother of the missing girl, the groundskeeper of the Kerouac House, a homeless bridge troll, and William S. Burroughs. Forget How You Found Us is the 3rd volume in Burrow Press’ 15 Views of Orlando Series, a literary collaboration in which one author sets the story in motion, and the fourteen authors that follow must (1) set their stories in a new location within the city, and (2) link their story to one of the previous by something as concrete as a character, or as abstract as a metaphor.
