The latest addition to the website is my review of French author Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud's short story, A Life on Paper.
A Life on Paper questions the role, creation, importance and understanding of art through the madness of Stiegling, who organised to have over 90,000 photographs taken of his daughter over her short, stunted, tragic lifetime. Thought-provoking while remaining entertaining and fulfilling as a story in its own right.
