Green Migraine

Michael Dickman

“My master plan is happiness,” writes Michael Dickman in Green Migraine, his wonderfully strange third book. Here, imagination and reality swirl in the juxtaposition between beauty and violence in the natural world. Drawing inspiration from the verdant poetry of John Clare, Dickman uses hyperreal, dreamlike images to encapsulate, illustrate, and illuminate how we access internal and external landscapes. The result is nothing short of a fantastic, modern-day fairy tale.
