Alice Leora Briggs / Dreamland

alice leorabriggs - surface and surfaceBeautifully dark sgraffito drawing by Alice Leora Briggs for the book ‘Dreamland: The Way Out of Juarez’ by Charles Bowden. I heard the story behind ‘Dreamland’ on the always enlightening radio show ‘This American Life’ during the week.Well worth a listen, the least you’ll get is a grounding reality check from a story of tortured, murder and revenge.
