Lawrence J. Taylor

With photographs by Maeve Hickey

2020 Palgrave: New York and London

In this collection of linked short stories, Hickey's black and white photographs offer a visual counterpoint that enriches the offbeat, unexpected quality of Taylor's fiction. Beginning with a cover photograph that captures the play between object and emotion in a local devotional statue and continuing inside with photographs facing each of the stories, Hickey's images are richly real and profoundly local, even as they find the eccentric fragments that plumb a universal humanity.
