"Are you always going to write about 'identity" a member of the Lucid Book Club asked when I gave a reading from my novel Argonauta several years ago. The room was full of psychiatrists, psychologists and resident psychiatrists and other writers. Argonauta is a fictionalized metaphor about what it means to uncover the truth in a "closed" adoption and the impact it has on both mothers and their families. The sole purpose in doing the reading was to promote the book, but I had miscalculated the fact that when you put yourself in a room full of health care professionals the odds are they're going to dissect your mental status.
