Roxane Gay, 'The Paris Review' and 'Photo-Eye' on Karen Green's 'Frail Sister'

Featured image is reproduced from Frail Sister, Karen Green's new book of collaged image and text by noted artist book publisher, Siglio Press. "What a beautiful, strange book," Roxane Gay writes in Goodreads, "found objects and fictional prose brought together to tell the real and imagined story of Constance Gale, through letters to her sister, letters from young men at war. From the beginning to the end of the book, we bear witness to a life, too-short but fully-lived. This is simply fascinating and gorgeously written, gorgeously assembled." Reviewed this week in The Paris Review, where Yevgeniya Traps considers the book "as an immersion, a piece of participatory theater, a way of getting lost among the artifacts of a civilization that eventually shows itself to have been ours all along," and Photo-Eye, where Karen Jenkins writes, "this is not only an additive project. The story is told as much in its subtractions, via overlaps, masking, and most cleverly, in the diminishing effect of words and images that challenge and contradict."
