The collages and silkscreens of John Stezaker contain stutters and elisions, gaps and coverings that pull viewers into an act of empathetic engagement, as the artist said in a 2011 interview included in the catalogue for his retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery.

Amber Sparkss third story collection And I Do Not Forgive You: Stories and Other Revenges is, as the title suggests, teeming with tales of retribution, though reducing the book or even its concept to that of a glorified burn book would be way off the mark. Desire, anger, murder, madness, robots, gods, monsters, apocalypses, love, hate, violence, magic, fairy godmothers, women as heroes, and men behaving badly (badly-behaved men who often pay with their lives, or hearts, or souls for said bad behavior): all these things live within this books pages.
