Everywhere She’s Not is a novel penned by author N. John Shore Jr. which focuses on self-destructive behavior, failed relationships and human nature. In this powerfully compelling introspective look at life, we meet our central hero (or anti-hero), David. Though brilliant in some ways, his life at the end of the 1970s is marred by the loss of long-term girlfriend Kate. Though he’s the one who caused the split, he doesn’t know why he did it, but getting her back seems totally out of the question. So begins a self-exploration like no other, and a fascinating look at human behavior.

Why do some people self destruct when they have a good thing going? This is a relationship question that many people will have been on one side of or the other, and author N. John Shore Jr. takes a frank and interesting look at it through the fictional narrative lens. Allowing them to get up close and personal to David gives readers a chance to experience his psyche for themselves, with the facts presented as emotive responses that we can really attune to and try to understand better than a factual work would deliver them. The wrecked persona of David is beautifully achieved through narrative intimacy, stellar descriptive work and compelling dialogue, which all serve to demonstrate the idea of a helpless creature molded into a shape he cannot escape from, no matter how he tries. Overall, Everywhere She’s Not is a harrowing and fascinating novel that is well worth reading for the emotive experience it delivers.
