Intimate Spaces explores what it is like to share space during times of genocide, war, and a pandemic. "Guests," the first of two stories, deals with a young Armenian woman who leaves her home and family in Eastern Anatolia to escape the outbreak of the Armenian Genocide in Turkey in 1915. “Subway,” the second story, takes place in present-day Toronto and is told in a long interior monologue by Nate Miradjian, a writer who recently lost his best friend to the covid-19 virus.This tension is layered over his memory of his father who survived the Genocide and his responsibility to confront its denial.
