Julia Bloch reviews Things To Do With Your Mouth

Things-To-Do-With-Your-Mouth_Divya-Victor_front-cover_thumbIn the new issue of Tripwire, Julia Bloch discusses Divya Victor’s Things To Do With Your Mouth within the context of the TrenchArt: Logistics series:

The language is as material as the flesh; it’s the encounter between the two that matters.
