AbstractMy thesis has two components: the first contains six pieces of fiction and, the second, a brief critical essay. -- West Orange is a collection of short stories, and while each of these stories contain individual themes and different characters and situations, they are meant to be considered as a thematic whole. "Before the Ambulance Arrives" is the story of an accident. "Remains" is a ghost story that is told without characters and without ghosts. "God" is a story about a story and concerns the way in which things can get lost, while "West Orange" is a story about something that is found on a beach. Finally, "The Seven Princesses" is a story about trying to tell a story in another land. -- In the essay, entitled Shades of West Orange, I attempt to explain some of the ideas that went into the writing of the stories and focus one of the wider themes therein. It can be viewed, therefore, as another type of ghost story.
