Welcome to the electronic press kit (EPK) for Garie McIntosh’s first novel, What’s in a Name.
The day turns freezing and dark, a heinous crime occurs, and abandonment ensues on the last day of school for a twelve-year-old girl named Christine in 1994 in Toronto, Canada. She has formed a compromise through her new name, Lena, to survive these events. Twenty-one years later, she finally realizes that her silence about the meaning of her name, which her mother gave to her on her death bed threatens her survival. Accompanied by her husband, she takes the trip of her life to a paradisaical landscape, Jamaica, where she meets a woman who knows a thing or two about compromising.
Christine discovers that both a woman’s compromise and her retraction of that compromise can be not only courageous but also dazzlingly infelicitous. That infelicity is found in the name of a seventy-four-year-old Jamaican woman who now calls herself Dell-Dell.
