Stark and vibrant, the two halves of this sutured book expose the Frankenstein-like scars of the assemblage we call human. In Another Governess a woman in a decaying manor tries to piece together her own story. In The Least Blacksmith a man cannot help but fail his older brother as they struggle to run their father s forge.Each of the stories stands alone, sharing neither characters nor settings. But together, they ask the same question: What are the wages of being? The relentless darkness of these tales is punctured by hope the violent hope of the speaking subject."
