Retrospect is a collection of three creative non-fiction stories. Together they create one cumulative piece ending with an epilogue on the stories as a whole. Each of the stories is named for a man they revolve around; however, the names are changed to protect their identities. The stories are factual and based on personal experiences. The men in these stories are some of the most influential people I've come into contact with, and the events that occur in this body of work are the most exciting and detrimental moments of my life. This collection is an excruciatingly honest dissection of my personal relationships with these men. In the end, the hardships served their purpose and the stories came together to give each other meaning.
