House of Dolls


Review of HOUSE OF DOLLS

"Grief, inhumanity, redemption, and several layers of metaphor--what heavy lifting Block does in just 80 pages!...What at first seems to be about the perennial war between familial generation is expanded into a message about the global forces of pride and avarice that plunge innocents into devastation. This is powerful, haunting, and just when you don't think it's possible-- inspiring, too. "--BOOKLIST starred review

  3. Francesca - these are a wonderful choice of illustrations to accompany your work. These more closely resemble the visual aesthetic I had always seen in my mind in relation to your work than some of the other book covers/illustrations you have chosen in the past. Beautiful.
