4.25" x 5.5" letterpress printed chapbook. 'The Groom' is one book of ten in an ongoing wedding-themed novel called THE HITCH: An Agamist Manifesto. While the ten books are thematically and often narratively related, each contains its own visual and textural theme, and the prose shifts in genre, from fiction to experimental memoir to lifestyle magazine feature to dramatic script.
'The Groom' explores a recurring image in THE HITCH: a baby doll that was drawn by a wedding planner and defaced by the caterers who work for him. The baby doll and its drawing are an actual memory from my childhood which will be further explored in a chapbook titled 'The Guest'.
