Magic Hedge #2 Firsts Seconds and Endings
by Marian Runk
56p, b&w and color, 7"x8.5"
Magic Hedge #2 taps into roots and stays in that below-surface place the whole issue. Runk's gives us intertwined vignettes of autobiography. The unspoken parts of childhood that exist riddled with shame and pain here resonate into subtle shapes of family, identity, friendship and coming into understanding. The richness of the storytelling is punctuated with bouts of birding and an observational humor that wears its heart on its sleeve. -EF
