The Lobster’s Tale reviewed in Takahē


The Lobster’s Tale by Chris Price and Bruce Forster has been reviewed in Takahē magazine by Jana A Thea.

The Lobster’s Tale, written by Chris Price and with photography by Bruce Foster, is truly an interdisciplinary volume – not only between written and visual arts but also across non-fiction and poetry. The main text, while being beautiful, is at varying times informative, anecdotal, humourous, and thought provoking. The poem that runs along the bottom of every page (except full photo pages) is haunting and eerily enchanting. The photographs are noticeably selected and arranged to fit, and sometimes change, the mood of every page. The blank spaces in this book make it even more moving. The Lobster’s Tale is, a quite unexpected thing.’
