Pretty Tripwire is mythic in its reiteration of its images, which clang with the authority of archetype. Here we meet wolf, bird, root, bell, legless ballerina, lost child, and a swarm of flowers that are everything but pretty. The speaker sees and sees, but what good is seeing, she asks, if you don’t have a voice for telling? To gain it she must unbolt memory, unearth the root, and encounter the pretty tripwires of the machinery of silence. Lynch’s journey is nothing less than heroic.”
—Diane Seuss, author of Four-Legged Girl and Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl
