Description

The view is comic and magical. In a suburban landscape where perfect lawns surround the hardwon homes of parents raising everyfamily, all is not as it seems. Heart surgery removes "Thumper" from Walt Disney's chest. A lonely Sigmund Freud action figure begs to be taken home. False teeth, haunted by their former owners, speak with affection to loved ones left behind. An imaginary wall, stolen from a mime, shares Chinese food with its kidnappers. In Doctor Weep, Gary Barwin has rediscovered worlds within our world: lovely, strange, funny, sometimes frightening, and always refreshingly human.
