Inspired by David Foster Wallace’s very first short story, which visualises mental discomfort as living on a different planet to Earth, and led by Emily Dickinson's early poems about life which shape the main character's inner monologue, FRAGMENTS OF MAY splits the eponymous lead character into two halves: one struggling in London in the past; the other trying to recover in a youth clinic in the present– until the two storyline collide, revealing the accident which brought May to be sectioned.
