An excerpt from Greta and Cecil is available here. Also available as PDF.


We are presented with a world of wavering gender and identity, filled with reflection and reiteration, photographic images, mirrors and screens, where false façades conceal equally artificial foundations and reality is just what you break your foot on as you stumble in the dark.
