Rosslyn Redux is a tangle of interwoven essays and stories rooted in the rehabilitation of an historic property on the Adirondack shore of Lake Champlain. For almost two centuries Rosslyn has seduced and flaunted, but she’s also been neglected. And she has crumbled. Centered around the experience of newlyweds who swap midtown Manhattan (and a parade of personal setbacks) for the promise of simple life in the Adirondacks, these lyric essays chronicle their unique adventure while plumbing universal themes: Wanderlust to Houselust, Archeology of Home, Rehab Ad Infinitum, and Redacting Rosslyn. These themes are broad yet focused, allowing me to explore the many facets along this journey of reawakening a home and ourselves.
