Karen Green to sign 'Frail Sister' at Aeon Bookstore NYC!

What a beautiful, strange book—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. —Roxane Gay on Goodreads

A fictional archive of altered photos, letters, collages and drawings, Frail Sister is a rescued history of a missing woman’s life in which Green poses the question: How does a woman disappear? Nimble, unnerving and darkly funny, Frail Sister examines the thin membrane between resiliency and fragility, the love of family and its betrayals, bringing a forgotten life into focus.

KAREN GREEN is an artist and writer whose inventive, hybrid image-text works narrate the intimate spaces of human experience. Her first book, Bough Down (Siglio, 2013), earned numerous accolades and a devoted readership. She lives in Northern California and New York City.
