dc.description Electronic Thesis or Dissertation
dc.description.abstract Matthew Mathers is an aging game show host for the local scholastic competition, In It to Win It. Faced with the prospect of being replaced by a younger host to boost ratings, Matthew loses both his public and personal personas that were dependent upon this professional identity. The story follows the deterioration of Matthew's self perception and connection to reality as he struggles to understand who he is in the absence of a societal definition. To combat this loss, Matthew relies upon constructing new ways of organizing, engaging with, and re-imagining the world. What he discovers is that his efforts to regain a strong sense of self through memory, experience, and story do not allow him to recapture knowable truths about either himself or the world he inhabits.
