Set amongst the desolate Icelandic landscape, Hannah Kent explores the life of a convicted murderer, Agnes Magnúsdóttir in her novel, Burial Rites.

Physical Evidence by Kelly Grey Carlisle is a nonfiction essay of herself when she was finding about her mother who she thought was killed during a car accident but was actually murdered. Carlisle is not only learning what happened to her mother but also is learning about her identity as she learns about her mother since she died when Carlisle was only a baby.

The car crashing aspect of Party Crashing carries a oneness with pain and anxiety that more similarly aligns with Ballard’s celebration of an identity at risk, walking the abject margin between life and death, reiterated when Green Taylor Simms elucidates, “When you’re aboard a motor vehicle, death passes within a finger’s length every few moments. Anytime a vehicle passes mine in the oncoming lanes, I could be subjected to torture more violent and painful than anything the world’s dictators would ever stoop to inflict,” (Palahniuk 170). Normativity is eschewed as a meaningless system for control that attempts to deny the natural abjection of life that includes violence and has no regard for the social and medical restrictions that hope to delay and distance one from the precarious precipice that is the border of life and death; Party Crashing seeks to embrace this borderline as the reality behind the social
