Fiction. California Interest. Myra Scar lies murdered on the floor of her gourmet restaurant, stabbed in the back with one eye cut out. The Chief of Police of Paso Robles will not find her killer by interrogating Patton August, the deceitful slacker who waits tables. He won't find the killer by digging up dirt on Jackson Judy, a brilliant Sommelier whose life is governed by a sequence of magic numbers. But if he traces this murder back to its roots—to a village in Alsace, 230 years ago, where a pioneering winemaker tried to save an exquisite Gewurtztraminer vine from Franco-German warfare—then he might find something that resembles the truth. If Edgar Allan Poe recited John Steinbeck's East of Eden while drunk on California wine, it would sound like J. M. Geever's first novel, THE BLACK CAT. A murder mystery and multi-generational family saga filled with transvestite vintners, obscure European wars, cats who walk upright, vengeful ghosts, and fine wine, THE BLACK CAT introduces the world to a captivating new voice in literature.

Among the psychological interpretations of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat,” trauma theory has yet to make an appearance. However, the confessional nature of the story shifts—via a trauma reading—from an attempt by the narrator to ease his guilt to his attempt to understand what happened to him. The narrator’s murder of his wife traumatized him, causing erasures in the timeline and several forms of dissociation. These erasures and dissociations cause an uncanny effect within the story, which occurs as the past, present, and future are conflated and as the narrator’s mind is both known and hidden. The narrator’s tale is an attempt at working through his trauma to come to an understanding and acceptance of the events. However, the unclear timeline—both how much time has passed since his wife’s death and the passage of time in the story—suggests that the narrator does not have enough critical distance from the events, so telling his tale becomes a form of reliving that does not relieve the confusion he experiences. Ultimately, the narrator’s confession does not provide the understanding he hopes for, which places the burden of creating an understanding of the story on the individual reader.
