mort covermort pulled-the-pants-down-ch-47“David Henry Sterry’s Mort Morte is a work of art. It is, at once, droll, provocative, poetic, disturbing. Though there are 118 chapters, it’s a quick read. Some are merely a sentence or two. But there’s enough food for thought — the vulnerability of youth, a child’s (surprising?) ability to perceive underlying truths, mother/child bond, coming of age, sexual predators, revenge — to last a lifetime. The text is joyously concise, right to the point (no fluff), and supported by poignant illustrations. A truly entertaining yet meaningful read. Bravo to the author. Kudos to the illustrator.
