Marietta Merz — Adam Craig
Originally a key story in the highly acclaimed collection, High City Walk, this limited edition pamphlet illustrated with original drawings takes us on a journey that is both beautiful and haunting.
From birth, Marietta Merz is engaged in a search for the marvellous in the everyday, a quest that leads to something more sublime than she could have imagined. A myth of transformation and the alchemy of different ways of seeing.
Adam Craig is a writer, editor, mentor, photographer and graphic designer. His debut novel was Vitus Dreams, an experimental novel that explores loss and language. His longstanding interest in mysticism and the occult is reflected in his second novel, In Dreams the Minotaur Appears Last, and in his short story collection, High City Walk, which first featured the story ‘Marietta Merz’, a counterpoint to the novel A Locket of Hermes and a bridge to his latest novel, Child of the Black Sun.
