About the Author

Laura Pavlo writes best once the sun has gone down. She believes in the ellipsis because there is always something more to say. She studies English and Art at an east coast university because art is everything she can't say and English is everything she can. Some of her poetry is published and her graphic design work is often times found scattered across her university’s campus. One day she hopes to publish at least one full-length novel, although she plans on publishing more than that, depending on how well the publishing economy is doing when she does so. Wish her luck, because who doesn’t need it?

More About the Author

Laura Pavlo is a graphic designer by day and writer by night. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.A. in English (minor in Creative Writing) and a B.A. in Graphic Design.

Her short stories have been published in Four Chambers Press, Stylus Literary Journal, and The Walrus Journal. She won first place for her novella "Ellipsis" for the Jimenez-Porter Writers Prize, and second place for both "Front Lawn" and "The F Train Downtown" for the Jimenez-Porter Writers Prize.

She's conquered James Joyce's Ulysses twice. She loves books (Hemingway, Beckett, Zafon, Bender), film (Birdman, Magnolia, Lincoln, A Clockwork Orange), television (The Sopranos, Mad Dogs, Misfits, Curb Your Enthusiasm), and art history (Whistler, Duchamp, Wyeth, Hopper). Yelp bestowed Elite status upon her three years in a row for her acclaimed and notoriously witty reviews, and while she loves writing about personal nonfictional experiences, she will choose fiction first, always.

Format: Paperback
Ellipsis by the new-and-upcoming young author Laura Pavlo is a compelling read about a woman, the narrator, trying to make sense of her life. The woman reflects on encounters she has had with different people, from her past and current boyfriends, to family members, to the divorced woman who works at her local coffee shop. She analyzes aspects about herself and her experiences in a remarkable effort of self-discovery.

Pavlo cleverly uses typography to illustrate the narrator's mental struggle between wanting to already have herself figured out and defined (The text is contained in narrow columns.) and wanting to explore and uncover more about who she is (The text is contained in wider columns.). Readers are drawn forward by the desire to learn where the woman's journey takes her. Will she accept that her life is like an ellipsis, uncertain but always leading towards something else?

Ellipsis is a novella that will make you think. At some time or another, we have all shared the narrator's curiosity about the ultimate question of our life's purpose. As you envelop yourself in Pavlo's vivid descriptions and poetic prose, you may just learn new aspects about your own identity. You won't want to miss this read.
