This publication features all thirty-six works on paper from the exhibition at Marvin Gardens, New York. Through the architecture of the narrative, a surreal landscape pours out. Abundant details of shading, pattern, and abstraction of figures coalesce into visually inventive and emotive characters.

Corresponding text weaves a narrative through the drawings, revealing the story of a high-school age Lawrie, having just moved from New Jersey to New Haven, Connecticut where she finds a community that is a little more accommodating, though not without its own betrayals.
