The Desert Places

July 11, 2016


Amber Sparks and Robert Kloss. The Desert Places. Illustrated by Matt Kish. Curbside Splendor, 2013.




The Desert Places is a slim volume of art with a stylish re-telling of origin myth, of lurking evil, its evolution, and the underlying destructiveness of "progress".

I can only take refuge in the title, alluding for me to Robert Frost's "Desert Places," which, of course, begins: "You cannot scare me . . . "
