In the first section of ESC on reading (Ctrl), characters are deeply affected by books, and, at times, destroyed by them. In the second section on writing (Alt), characters develop an intense, sometimes flawed, relationship to writing. In the third section on other worlds (Delete) characters engage another world as they discover new truths. In these stories, the reader is taken outside of his or her comfort zone in order to see if the “Escape” plan really works.
