Kathrynp: Thanks for asking about the illustration. It's from a surrealist poster for a production of Richard Strauss’ 1905 operatic adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s “Salome.”

More Pleasantness :-(

As a Canadian, I am somewhat obligated to like Margaret Atwood, no matter what unpleasant subject she chooses. I once read a portion of her memoir which was well written and interesting. Most of the time, however, her topics are depressing and her considerable talent is squandered on the distasteful. While reading this story all I could think was, "Good Lord, Woman! Is there a cheerful bone in your body somewhere?" Here now, is one more dismal offering by a great Canadian author.

what's the visual?

I love the painting(?) with this story -- who's it by, and what's it called?
