Kym, a biracial college senior, thinks she’s lucked into the perfect resume-builder for a career in academia: helping renowned white feminist scholar Beverly Norden finish her ground-breaking book on Shakespeare’s Queen Margaret before Alzheimer’s makes the task impossible. The passing months make clear that Beverly’s failing memory is not the greatest obstacle to their work, forcing Kym to reassess her connection with Beverly, Beverly’s son, and academia itself. Can Kym follow echoes of the Margaret story in her own path forward?
