The Case


The Case by Helene Pertl is a book that marries form and content in an exploration of trauma and time. An unstable open binding holds the sections of the book together, and eventually disintegrates, physically drawing the reader into the narrative. ‘A quietly violent book, a catastrophe made poetic by presenting it as a collection of fragmented hallucinatory texts and carefully observed drawings of banana skins, which are sprawled and contorted in wildly uncomfortable positions’ Stephanie Black ‘Rear View Mirror’, Varoom.
