By Joanna Ruocco,Ben Marcus

Stark and colourful, the 2 halves of this sutured booklet divulge the Frankenstein-like scars of the assemblage we name “human.”

Each of the tales stands on my own, sharing neither characters nor settings. yet jointly, they ask an analogous query: What are the wages of being? The relentless darkness of those stories is punctured by means of hope—the violent desire of the talking subject.
