Joseph SC

Joseph is another fantastical tale from surrealist master Nicholas Robel. A little boy with enormous hands and an overactive imagination copes with indifferent parents, teasing schoolmates, and troubling dreams. Returning to themes explored in Fallen Angel - his first book from D+Q's Petit Livres series - Robel captures the wonders and traumas of childhood in a short narrative that is as emotionally sincere as it is cryptic, while deftly melding the corporeal with the imaginary in his signature simple yet highly evocative style. Robel's first book, Fallen Angel, is offered here as well.
