We don’t experience memory in linear fashion, nor even in a strictly coherent one. It’s peppered with tangents and strange loops. It’s multithreaded. It’s not always made up of words. Why should a memoir strive to strip memory completely of this context?

“Cleareyed yet powerfully immediate . . . A fresh, daring exploration of lived experience.”
Kirkus Reviews

ally is an ergodic, arborescent, semiautobiographical work about identity, mental health, spirituality, and the mutability of the past. A lot of the information contained within is real, some of it isn’t. Each page is structured as a conversation between the self and an ally.

““That matters to me more than I expected,” said about someone else’s life, is my summary of this whole book.”

Based off the interactive project at ally.id, this book explores different facets of a life — some true, some embellished, some wholly fictitious — in a non-linear, ergodic fashion, using color, page-layout, and mixed-media to create a book more experience than memoir.

“I felt I was chasing down fractions of the author’s soul. Chasing them not because I got this to read and review, but because I deeply wanted to. So I could put them together and solve an ultimate puzzle whose picture would contain some incomprehensible beauty.”
Linnea Capps
