Five Wounds- 'Literary Minded' Review.

Lyndon Riggall has written a guest review of Five Wounds for writer Angela Meyer's 'Literary Minded'. An excerpt of the review is below:
"The book lives through its words and breathes through its pictures - one is inseparable from the other. Like the five intertwining stories of its main characters, so too do the different forms of the narrative intertwine into one powerful hydra of a novel."

Below are two other illustrations related to wheels of fortune:
A medieval illustration which relates the wheel of fortune with the agricultural cycle.

This illustration was created Thomas Vaugham in the 1600's. Which possibly advises against possessiveness in order to live a dynamic life. I can't say for sure however. This drawing may even use the possibilities of steam power & the wheel to symbolise mobility, but I really am speculating now.
