dc.description.abstract This thesis attempts to explore through the lens of personal experience the role that leaving plays in living. The thesis pays particular attention to the people, places, and moments humans leave behind during their growing up and growing old. The first part of the thesis describes the narrator’s childhood experience, which is depicted to seem as fleeting to the reader as possible. The awareness of losing or leaving things precisely as he loses or leaves them is fundamental to the purpose of the narrator in this thesis. Part two serves to reinforce the notion that living, by its very definition, is a form of leaving. Part three describes some of the people and places the now adult narrator has left behind.
