Striking. . . Holmes’s bold, color-saturated collages and acrylics are a stirring match for McCarthy’s poetic prose—the family sails across ‘the deeper, darker Atlantic Ocean, which murmured like a giant in its sleep’—in a telling that emphasizes the figure’s complexity.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Lyrical text, interspersed with quotes from Gibran’s poetry, describes the writer’s childhood in Lebanon, religious tension in his homeland, and his family’s move to Boston. . . . Holmes’ skillfully patterned collages reinforce Gibran’s complex life through symbolic imagery and color. . . the overall effect is lovely.
