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?

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.
