AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In Ghostly Subjects, Maria Takolander applies her unflinching gaze to topics ranging from the Madrid train bombings to sex dolls, from domestic violence to poetry readings, and from love games to cosmetics. The world portrayed in this striking collection is intensely uncanny and rendered with a distinctive precision of language and vision. (Publisher's blurb)
