Literary Nonfiction. Essays. Edited by Geoffrey Babbitt and David Weiss. FIVE PLOTS is a debut essay collection by Erica Trabold, winner of the inaugural Deborah Tall Lyric Essay Book Prize, selected by John D'Agata. FIVE PLOTS delves into notions of how we are shaped by the land every bit as much as we shape it. This is a book that eschews easy ways of understanding and experiencing the world by investigating place as a malleable psychological and phenomenological force.
