Influential musician Andrew Liles releases a dark and fantastic literary work relating to childhood and sufferings, illustrated with six images and a sound piece.
After 3 Poèmes
by William Wordsworth, Lenka Lente releases another story of childhood
suffering. Mother Dearest
poses the questions: is the young narrator a girl or a boy? Is his brother human? Is his father a busy scientist or an idiot hermit? Is his mother a simple (and happy) narcissistic pervert? Très Chère Mère / Mother Dearest
is illustrated throughout and the text is in both English and French. The book comes with an eponymous 13 minute CD.
