About this title


Invoking connections between cinematic and poetic images, The Book of Whispering in the Projection Booth traverses a split between the essential innocence and peculiar severity of children s games. Drawing on films such as Víctor Erice's The Spirit of the Beehive and Charles Burnett's Killer of Sheep, the art of Yoshitomo Nara, and the writings of Charles Brockden Brown, Wilkinson shifts between lyrical fragments and stark, image-laden prose poems. What unfolds is a series of phantom songs and little yarns:

"The messenger picked a powdered tulip & placed it on the frozen windshield of a truck behind the tannery as the tannery smoked. But it was still early & all the bachelors huddled in a corner to watch who came in. I came in."

And so should you . . . .
