The novel begins as Arella prepares for 2000 and the fresh start it represents. More at home in cyberspace than anywhere she has actually lived, she reinvents herself and her life story for readers of a multimedia web diary she calls *Arella's Repertoire, * a blend of memoir, travelogue, and blog. Characters who star in this virtual drama recapture worlds Arella has known and weave together the memories, dreams, and imaginings that have contributed to her development as a woman and a writer in postmodern America. Framed as an online text that she posts incrementally throughout the month of December 1999, the narrative explores personal and cultural memory. *Arella's Repertoire* forms part of a quartet that also includes two works of nonfiction, *Video-Graphic Alchemy: Transforming "Dear Diary"* and *VirtualDayz: Remediated Visions & Digital Memories, * and another fictional text, *Vagabond Scribe (Leah's Backstory).*
