A Book for Day Dreamers Reviewed by A/C

Gapers Block's Arts and Culture editor, Kelly Reaves reviewed I Take Back the Sponge Cake, and recommends it to all you day dreamers out there--particularly those among you with hammock access. Here's an excerpt of her review:

"Those who enjoy directing their own artistic experiences should check out I Take Back the Sponge Cake, a "lyrical choose-your-own-adventure" book, illustrated by SAIC alumna, Loren Erdrich. Erdrich's simple yet gritty drawing style compliments Sierra Nelson's poetry nicely, giving us disorienting sensory experiences to dip our toes into and leaving us to sink or swim from there."
