Literary Nonfiction. Art. Poetry. Preface by Mary Ann Caws. Norma Cole's DRAWINGS is an art book featuring over 60 notebook sketches and drawings, often incorporating collage elements.
"The notebooks are piled up, the sparse texts say much without spelling it out; something about being or not saying sorry. Here is the thing: as a reader-viewer, I appreciate the possibility of making my own sense of the given and hidden, allowing my feeling of the story to take me in, without re-reading to check..."—Mary Ann Caws, from the Preface.
