Very Short List is a daily email recommending one excellent, but under-hyped, entertainment gem. Today’s VSL recommendation came from me. I wrote a short review of Woman's World, a novel by Graham Rawle.
In creating Woman’s World, collage artist Graham Rawle spent five years cutting 40,000 snippets of text and spot illustrations from 1960s women’s magazines and pasting them onto 437 sheets of paper. The result is a page-turning thriller that’s utterly original yet retains the sensibility of its source material. Even without Rawle’s amazing facsimile presentation, Woman’s World stands on its own as a delightfully dark suspense novel about a family with a horrible secret.Link
