This month’s book:

Henry Darger, Throw Away Boy by Jim Elledge

Jim Elledge cuts through the cloud of controversy and rediscovers “outsider artist” Henry Darger as a damaged, fearful gay man, raised in a world unaware of the consequences of child abuse or gay shame.

Read in conjunction with Social Geographies: Interpreting Space and Place.
