New Nonfiction: "Relics" by Laura Youngby Llalan • 03.19.2012
I reluctantly agreed to share my author with the art editor this month so we could feature Laura Young’s delicate prose in Relics alongside her photographs of the more fragile moments in nature. The essay and the art are beautiful on their own, but together they become even more powerful. I fear, though, that if I try to describe them, I’ll mar them: sticky fingerprint on the window pane. So hold out your hands like someone’s handing you a baby bird, and read on.
