Tina Gabler, nearing 60, wants to pursue her own creative goals. She gets a job as Peter Bright’s research assistant, a former news anchor working on a book about staged photos in journalism. As she helps Peter track down a photo’s provenance and his estranged Cree daughter, Tina reflects on her own relationship with her father and the balance between personal and collective achievement. “Burning and Dodging” is a funny, thoughtful exploration of how we construct stories about ourselves and others. $0.99 on Kindle.
