A man in London gets a postcard from a South Seas Woman who has been telepathically viewing his artwork. This is such an extraordinary book full of surprises. Much of the writing is in letters which reader takes out of envelopes or reads on postcards and the pictures are really interesting if a bit macabre. Very different kind of read. Imagine walking through an art gallery viewing cartoon art, that's what it feels like.
