Bough Down


The reader holding Bough Down for the first time will see a collage of text partly blocked by a translucent flap with the texture of thick wax paper on which the title is written in what looks like a scrawny longhand until you notice that the letters look more like wires bent and threaded into shape, or stitches on a wound. The author, Karen Green, was married to David Foster Wallace when he killed himself in 2008, and much of her art for the past five years has been an attempt to make sense of his death and to live alongside it.

Re: Bough Down


Thanks for this, Chris. The review itself vibrates with emotion and unanswered questions. I'm glad Karen Green found a way to express and work with her grief.
