A Giant Claw (9780982354285)
Art. Latino/Latina Studies. The B-movie THE GIANT CLAW is Gronk's Citizen Kane in this reprise of Mitch MacFee's and Mlle Mathematician's meeting with, what else, a giant claw. Drawing for Gronk is writing, or perhaps writing is drawing, possibly a book of poetry, since its language is images, each page organized with the fragility of poems, laced with elegant verbal and visual puns. 100 illustrations. Foreword by Gail Wronsky translated into Spanish by Alicia Partnoy.
