Who doesn’t love Law and Order? You are set up with an interesting case, find clues, and within the course of an hour, you find out who did it. Open-and-shut case.

The fact of the matter is that we love closure. We like things that are complete. It gives us a sense of control, a sense that things are right with the world.

But what happens when there is no closure? What happens when we are set up for a mystery but receive a tragedy? That’s what happened to me last week reading a book. I thought I was reading one thing and had the floor taken our from under me.

In this week’s episode of Everyday Liminality, Br. Tito and I discuss the merits of such works and how we deal with the fact that not every mystery has a happy ending.
