Veronica’s Papers

A Novel

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. That is what we are told and I have no difficulty believing it for I have been trying to create with words all my life. But now there is loss of memory and an inability to write. Creation of the type that I desire has led to an all-embracing silence."
