Fretta and Thin ..by Susan Krupp is available for sale
An odd little book...
Well, It's done! Watch for Fretta and Thin
Fretta and Thin has been resurrected. After years in hiding this manuscript, written in the early 80's, resurfaced and its author, Susan Krupp, will soon be making it available for sale.
It's an odd story that was written while traveling across Canada. Its attention focuses on two emerging artists in the Toronto Queen Street West area, which at that time was the hub of the city's creative clump of misfits and genius'.. The characters live, love, go mad, and eventually explode in self destruction...all for the sake of ART.
Resurrecting Fretta and Thin was a bit of a painstaking process. I had to scan every page and do some fine editing. It's not your normal read..it's completely handwritten and is full of illustrations and comment inserts. What makes it especially odd is that It comes with a magnifier..you may need it. Some sections have literally dissolved and it is a challenge in spots to decipher. This makes the process of reading a creative experience as well.
