Where Dads Go: A Soundtrack for My Unborn Child

In this week’s Enumerate, writer Jennifer Baker pushes the boundaries of conventional storytelling in her PowerPoint slideshow “Where Dads Go.” This presentation, inspired by Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad, incorporates visual elements such as graphs, charts, and imagery in order to tell the multigenerational story of an unborn child’s absentee father. Baker’s visual narrative is accompanied by a playlist, available to readers on the page below the slide show. To listen to the songs in full, Spotify requires that listeners use their app.
