Forster is known for his commentary on social class and hypocrisies, and examining such with wit and intelligence. Howards End in particular places a magnifying glass on three families of varying classes at the beginning of the 20th century. In the novel the half-German Schlegel sisters look to help the impoverished Basts while also working with the rich Wilcoxes to rid them of their ingrained prejudices.
Pinocchio, Histoire d’un Enfant is the disturbing and nightmarish brainchild of artist and author Ausonia.
The new take on the classic tale takes the traditional Pinocchio story and twists it inside out… Almost literally. In the original tale a human man makes a puppet out of wood, in Ausonia’s version a wooden man makes his puppet out of flesh, bone and sinew…
