is the key to Larry Volk’s images of his mother’s experience in the Holocaust. He came and talked to my class today and showed us the images he has made that are based on his mother’s life. My students were interested in how the complexity of his work represents his mother’s fragmentation. I was interested in how the broken and interrupted pictures make us curious. He creates mysteries we want to solve. My first editor told me that that is what successful books need to do. Raise questions in the minds of readers, questions that they want to answer.
