    1. what was interesting is that i just grabbed this off the shelve w out reading what the story was about and i work at a pizza place called marilyn s which is covered in her photos it was kinda creepy going in the day after i finished this.

    2. I loved and hated The Angel Carver It was a beautiful read, but really disturbing I can t say why without spoiling it.

    3. A shoemaker by day and a carver of Angels by night A young woman comes into his life and he watches her be controlled by a man to become a Marilyn Monroe clone.
