Product description

Review

"In Jeffers’s first book featuring lithography, a medium that reproduces the energy of his lines with startling vividness, dashes of violent pink, acid yellow, and Prussian blue punctuate expanses of white space. Boldly conceived and gracefully executed, Jeffers’s dark fable imagines what happens when desire leads to selfishness and self-destruction, and shows the merits of calm refusal in the face of dangerous individuals."--Publishers Weekly

"A parable sure to spark lively discussions." --Booklist

"A cautionary fable on the banality of belligerence." --Kirkus Reviews
