The Rabbit is a story of a girl hiding behind the camera, and in telling her story, she is courageously pushing herself in front of it.
As a photographer by trade and writer by avocation, Coco McCracken takes us through her photo album. Here is her childhood. These are her teenage years. That's her family. This is alcoholism. This is divorce. Those people are her friends. That guy there? He is her heartthrob. He is also her heartbreak.
Kazuo Ishiguro, in his 2017 Nobel Prize speech, says, "But in the end, stories are about one person saying to another: This is the way it feels to me. Can you understand what I'm saying? Does it also feel this way to you?"
Like all the best storytellers and photographers, Coco McCracken is asking her own version of those questions, asking the reader to see the beauty and sadness and transcendence that she sees. -From the Introduction to The Rabbit, by Phuc Tran
