A 16 year old dare to jump off a harbour wall turns disorienting and dangerous.
Violent turbulence on a flight to Hong Kong after a 3rd year perceived disaster that thwarts ideas of a PhD in marginalized medieval women poets.
Another lakeside walk, this time accompanied, but in Chile, as dark approaches, a machete wielding madman.

A structure to have imposed across a set of memories, recalling 17 brushes with death and the organ they're associated with, some are dramatic, others realised after the risk has passed, one her mother shares, some that don't get a chapter, mentioned in passing.
Each 'brush' is a complete story, vignette, making it a collection with that common thread running through, passing back and forth in time.

The scene setting in the opening lines of the 2 sections I've read are so compelling, this no "told" narrative, it's a show and make the reader feel how it was narrative. Both inside the mind and body of a young girl and and of the natural surrounds, oblivious and ominous.
