She cries to me from the past. A past that isn’t mine.
Douglas ‘Angel’ Sermanni is losing himself.
Other people’s memories are an open book to him – the gift and curse of a Weaver. His psyche has been fractured by the trauma of his clients, and now he’s been cast out by his secretive overseers, The Mnemosyne Project.
The fog of Angel’s mind is punctured by a recovered memory: the dying call of a young girl. He flees London – and a fledgling romance with a normal human – to follow the dying girl’s final words.
He is led back to his Thailand boarding school where a forgotten pact made with childhood friends is rekindled. Amid the rain and neon of Bangkok’s backstreets, a deadly truth lies in wait.
With each terrifying revelation, Angel’s past and present fold into one another, threatening to change the course of his world forever.
A science fiction mystery novel
The Memory Project is a queer speculative fiction that explores the world of Weavers, rare telepathic humans who can experience the memories of others through touch.
The story brings together the themes of friendship, nostalgia, gay romance, gender and identity fluidity to explore the meaning of memory and its mutability. And all in the package of a page-turning supernatural murder mystery.
With the compelling pace of YA fiction and the reflection of a 30-something drama, The Memory Project fuses self-discovery with nostalgia and supernatural mystery. X-Men meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
