The Road to Somewhere Else marks a departure in Sunday’s writing.
This collection is an intellectual exploration of family dysfunction, human displacement, and the pursuit of self-preservation, concisely communicated in the characters’ voices, poems, and essays.
Six eclectic short stories provide readers with an intimate relationship with characters enduring circumstances created by others, the devastating impact of dysfunctional families, and the demise of a dystopian friendship. The characters are forced to decide their future.
The collection includes a small sampling of succinct poetry that echoes the book’s stories and essays.
In the opening essay, Dear Mystic, Connecticut the author shares her newfound love of this enchanting village. At the same time, Sunday takes readers on a personal journey of self-exploration as she searches for her creative spiritual home.
The second essay progresses Sunday’s discussion of solitude, work, and the constant encroachment of digital technology. In the final essay, Cape Cod, Sunday undertakes a philosophical conversation as she imagines herself walking along the shores of Cape Cod, like previous writers, searching for creative seclusion and human independence.
