And may we suggest Tom Whalen‘s wickedly surreal DOLL WITH CHILI PEPPER—just released in our Absurdist Texts & Documents series. Whalen’s disquieting dolls come alive in a Parisian cinema haunted, it seems, by the dreams of Sade, Gogol, Baudelaire, and Bellmer. The author’s previous award-winning book Dolls—an exploration of these consorts from childhood—was described by Sven Birkerts as “malign and unsettling and darkly outré.”
We believe readers will find this new volume even more transgressive.
This edition is limited to just 50 copies, so don’t waste a moment.
A NOTE ON THE COVER: The striking cover photograph is by Eleanor Bennett, an award-winning British photographer, who just happens to be 16 years old. Watch for future work here by this remarkably talented young artist.
