2019 is a partial fiction book. This book is my way of encapsulating the overwhelming events after the beginning of the pandemic in 2019. The words in email format are my thoughts, and recollections of experiences from the events that followed the outbreak of Covid-19, whereas the handwritten text are fictional thoughts inspired by a collection of real events, through news, social media, and hearsay.
The doors act as dividers between my experiences and the thoughts of fictional characters. They are also expressions of being confined indoors in contrast to being forced outside the home or away from home in the migrant workers’ case.
