3. Breakout Title In the Shadow of Empire In the Shadow of the Pax Americana
1. Story statement “In the Shadow of Empire” is a memoir in creative non-fiction form. Through it, I tell the story of how three empires, the Pax Britannica, the Pax Americana, and the evolving Pax (Eurasiana as I view it) have shaped my life, derailing it regularly but also enriching it with extraordinary experiences. It is a story about belonging to a vanishing world, and about finding (and keeping) myself while continually trying to capture its few remains.
