A chance to purchase these two books by Ann Daly. 

In a blurring of the genres of memoir and fiction, Drafts: Letters Unsent, is a mediation on the narrator's detective work, through unsent letters, which attempt to "make sense" of the catastrophic aftermath of WWI, WWII, and the Korean War, for her family. Radical doubt regarding documents, particularly photographs, and the active dynamic of interpretation underscore the role of desire and psychological projection throughout the forensic search, and the difficulty of knowing "what has been."

Ann Daly's Box of Fiction is a photographic essay on the uncanny afterlife of objects, photographs, narratives and biographies inherited through material and verbal fragments, and of the act of documenting - as in a crime scene - the contents of a cardboard box discovered a decade after the death of the artist's mother. For Daly, the work of interpretation does not rest, rather it remains agitated within a palimpsest of silencing surrounding catastrophic family events.
