weaves worlds and eras to speak a universal language—a language lamenting the complexities of grieving. In this immersive narrative, Spencer Dew adopts Henry Adams's classic meditation on gothic architecture as a contextual framework to explore one woman’s stages of mourning as she returns to a home left long ago to watch an already distant mother slip away.
Featuring a DIY scale model of the cathedral at Chartres and transparent overlays, we might be so bold as to suggest that the book is a rather handsomely prepared object.
