Message from Priscilla Dobbins Wonderful News! The book, is now available at bookstores, Amazon and AuthorHouse Publishers.
Her new novel, The Untelling, though focused on one family, tells a story no less wrung with grief. When Ariadne Jackson was around 10 years old, her father and younger sister Genevieve were killed in a car crash that Jones describes with quiet, matter-of-fact horror. Ariadne, her mother Eloise and older sister Hermione survived, physically unscarred, but psychologically mangled.
The damage sometimes manifests in roundabout ways. Eloise's quirkiness she chose her daughters' names can turn mean; she can bake BB's into cornbread, or capriciously lock her daughters out of the house.
Hermione has married her father's best friend and her relations with her stepdaughter, a woman who's older than she is, are icy. Ariadne's father died when she was on the brink of puberty, and it seems that her very womanhood has been compromised. This problem has especially sad consequences for her relationship with her boyfriend Dwayne.
Also, like her mother who was holding baby Genevieve on her lap during the car accidentAriadne carries an unwarranted but overpowering burden of guilt: Jones surrounds these unhappy women with other well-drawn characters. Even Ariadne's father, though only seen in glimpses, comes across as sweet, gentle and flawed.
Jones' writing is graceful and lucid, and though the story ends unhappily, it doesn't end in despair. The Jacksons are strong women; they have survived, and will continue to survive.
The Untelling is a poignant story about the often cruel randomness of life, and how one woman in particular copes with it.It has a clean, classic taste, without being overpowering, and leaves no aftertaste.

Psychoanalysis Analysis - Hamlet by William Shakespeare BACK; NEXT ; Intro. Hamlet is practically tailor-made for Freudians.. The sheer number of Freudian concepts that are applicable to Shakespeare's magnum opus is crazy.
There is a father who must be avenged, but also a sense of guilt so overpowering that it paralyzes the hero, leaving him famously unable to act. Why this technique works: Sheer, overpowering guilt.
Primary practitioners of this technique: The cross-section of individuals without thumbs and individuals who care about what's inside cans. Also, like her mother (who was holding baby Genevieve on her lap during the car accident), Ariadne carries an unwarranted but overpowering burden of guilt: she blames herself for refusing to comfort her father during his last moments of life.
