Studies of Pain in a Multitude of Forms is a collection of creative non-fiction work based around the different types of pain that an individual can experience while attempting to navigate their childhood, their relationship with their partner, and their relationship with their own body. Several longer-form essays are broken up by brief interlude flash pieces titled according to the colors that dominate their scenes. These small bits and pieces from the author's experience help to guide the flow of the larger works, working to lead the reader along the evolution of the writings. Borrowing from different formats for their work, from a piece styled as a research paper to a letter written to someone who will never receive it, the author attempts to help make one of life's most impossible tasks- the understanding of another person's experience and pain- possible.
