Glorious Veils of Diane is about the weird way children turn themselves inside out on the world, and a reimagining of the author’s own childhood. Diane is an ever-changing archetype, a self-conscious child who's seen too many horror movies and is discovering, for the first time, her own blood. A child who thinks she is God, and who sees every person in her life as an extension of herself. A child who is possessed, beloved, and ignored. The book emerges through a chorus of voices belonging to Diane, the people around her, and blood itself. At some point, Diane disappears. The book then investigates that disappearance, jumping back and forth through time, the physical world, and the spirit world. Ultimately, it suggests that Diane is not what is behind the veils; Diane is the veils.
