What with working here and at Öröm and our all hoping she's still creating art, Sydni's got a full plate, but always saves room for dessert -- doing a little reading. And, just like any considerate friend, she will share a bite.
Still Life with Woodpecker is a sort of a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes. It reveals the purpose of the moon, explains the difference between criminals and outlaws, examines the conflict between social activism and romantic individualism, and paints a portrait of contemporary society that includes powerful Arabs, exiled royalty, and pregnant cheerleaders. It also deals with the problem of redheads.
