THOUGHTS ONE CAN'T DO WITHOUT NO. 3: A MAGPIE AND AN ENVELOPE by Carol Mavor
A5, 48 pages, Black & white printed, Saddle stitch, Softcover, Ed. of 750, 2021
A contemplative and lyrical memoir of early childhood, inheritance, and loss. Carol Mavor blends encounters with the works of Piero della Francesca and Brueghel, Goya and Mann, alongside a synesthetic immersion in pre-linguistic memory. It is a scholarly and intimate look at grief and reparation, imagination and forgiveness, told by one of the most interesting and genre-defying contemporary essayists around.
