“An Extraordinary Theory of Objects”: A TCK in Paris and the Things That Keep Her Sane, Sort of

Clearing Customs posted a cool little book entitled An Extraordinary Theory of Objects: A Memoir of an Outsider in Paris. It is a series of vignettes by Stephanie LaCava about her move to France as a twelve-year-old in 1993, her years there growing up, and then her visits back again after attending college in the States.Much of LaCava’s narrative is about time spent with her father, often searching flea markets for items to fulfill their eccentric tastes. At other times, she talks about her classmates at the international school. La CAva controls the inner chaos of her life in a Paris suburb by naming the objects she encounters. Then, years later, she examines them even more closely and writes about them so that she can share with us her own kind of strange . . . and her own kind of normal.
