Synopsis by Tom Vick
A narrative experiment following the psychological unraveling of a sensitive young man, Monologue is told from the point of view of Ajayan. Abandoned by his mother at birth, he is raised in luxury and affection by the doctor who delivered him. As a boy, he precocious nature and sharp wit get him into continuous trouble, and when he grows older a gnawing sense of loss brought on by his inability to connect to other people pushes him to the edge of neurosis. At this point the story begins again, this time emphasizing different details and changing others altogether, until it becomes impossible to separate the truth from Ajayan's troubled imagination.
