The central chapters of the novel are in the form of a fictional diary, and fictional letters, recovered from a dumpster by Leon and read by Cassie. These chapters describe the destruction of a small town theater, the Majestic, as well as the emotional struggles of the large diner waitress and the angry theater employee who write them.
