Exploring the narcissism inherent in infatuation, «I Don’t Think of You (Until I Do)» is a needed novella of our time. Tatiana Ryckman exposes the awkward, disorienting state of passion, while articulating the comic nature that permeates the melodrama of a long-distance relationship from one summer to the next. These sexy, charged, and deeply felt musings to an unnamed lover—while keeping gender anonymous—captures what loving and lusting from a distance can bring upon all of us.
