Fuselage of Bone: A Memoir
On December 21st, 1988, thirty-five of my classmates, friends, and flatmates died in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. I was only 19 years old. I was supposed to be on that plane. Instead, I had just seen them off to Heathrow Airport only hours before. My best friend was among them.
Fuselage of Bone zooms in on our budding lives as young actors enrolled in the Syracuse University Theater program, stories of friendships only I can tell. We were immersed in a newfound sense of belonging and buzzed with excitement to study abroad together in London. The memoir follows my journey through the bombing, the lonely debilitating grief, my brushes with overwhelming international media attention, and the self-punishment I battled as a kind of lone survivor. Braided throughout the memoir are the voices of those living quietly in Lockerbie, who awoke to shattered bodies and molten metal raining down across their quiet hamlet. I came to know many of these kind souls who’d undertaken the grim task of tending my friends’ remains.
The narrative is set against the ticking clock of the terrorist plot unfolding in Libya and traces my unprecedented panic attacks and nightmares of exploding planes which inexplicably began months before.
