"The passing of years seems a ruse of the gods, for only yesterday I was playing in the sand."

Memory is a strange thing. A fragile patchwork of recollection. A dream that fades after waking. Arcade of Memory is a beautiful collection of essays, poems, and short stories that explores the notion of memory, drawing from the author's experiences traveling throughout the world. Essays examine memory and the act of making meaning. Poems, written in the style of Japanese tanka, draw inspiration from global culture. Short stories use history as a springboard for contemplating the mysteries of life. This lyrical, thoughtful collection reminds us that our personal past is a mythical land, which can only be visited through recollection and imagination.
