"On Going Home Again" is June Avignone's bold artistic essay that redefines autobiographical possibilities for writers and artists alike. Each page is a unique enough work of art that you don't need page numbers...Avignone reaches beyond the personal to caputre the odyssey of leaving home and returning in spirit, if not substance, to the feelings of beginning, to times when ends were means of finishing stories that fashioned limitless possiblities. Histories, public and private, collide and collapes into one another in this work. Avignone's montage creates a multivocal, multilayered autobiographical flash that attempts to capture a lifetime in a blink, or is it a wink?
