Laura van den Bergs latest short story collection, I Hold a Wolf by the Ears, focuses on women trying to cope with whatever life brings them, which is usually something traumatic, sexist, and violent.

Friedrich Nietzsche wrote about idols as something to sound: We imagine the hollow, golden calf that horrified Moses as full of air, a mere bloviator on behalf of the Canaanite fertility god, Baal. But Nietzsche pushes the reader to go further, to listen to the idols famous hollow sound as someone with ears behind his ears, which invitation theorizes sound about sound. WJT Mitchell theorizes metapictures along similar lines; they consist of a picture in which the image of another picture appears and which may function as a foundational metaphor or analogy for an entire discourse.
