Paula Treick DeBoard - The Fragile World

In The Fragile World, Curtis Kaufman picks up the midnight phone call with his wife, Kathleen, by his side and his daughter, Olivia, listening in the shadows. The police are telling him his son—his genius, bright, talented son, Daniel–has died in a “freak accident.” Suddenly, the Kaufman’s happy, loving family will never be the same. Daniel’s unexpected death affects Curtis, Olivia, and Kathleen in different ways. In the aftermath of that tragic phone call, Curtis grows more and more secluded, pushing his wife away until she cannot bear the isolation any longer and leaves her family to start a new life in her hometown.

Curtis has one thing on his mind: revenge against Robert Saenz, man who killed his son. He can’t function at the school where he teaches, which Olivia attends, because his mind is increasingly tormented with vengeful thoughts. His anger reaches a boiling point when the man who killed his son is let out of prison. Though he tries to bury his feelings about this news, things come to a head as he stands, paralyzed with grief, on the roof of the school, and everyone, including his daughter, thinks he will jump. Instead, he finds himself inspired to take justice into his own hands, and the road trip to murder Saenz begins.

Paula Treick DeBoard is the author of The Mourning Hours. She received a B.A. in English from Dordt College.

Weekly assignments progress from a few paragraphs to full-length articles, with the goal of writing publishable pieces. Students learn to research stories, write query letters, work with editors, and market their articles. This highly successful class has led to numerous published stories, including many tales in the annual Best Travel Writing and Lonely Planet anthologies.
