Here’s the freshest installment of Clayton Cubitt’s Hysterical Literature starring Brooklyn artist Danielle Ezzo. Here she is reading a passage from the 1980 “post-modern fairy tale” Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins about love, cocaine and other things. Sorry for that headline not being subtle… but I’m running out of delicate and witty ways of telling you that the lovely, fearless ladies in this series have a secret on their chairs. In fact, between lines and breathes, you can hear that secret buzzing.

This might be our favorite right now. That is not to say that Stoya’s Necrophilia Variations and Alicia’s Leaves of Grass weren’t inspiring, but… As Clayton tells ANIMAL:

I think my favorite part of this one is the endearing way Danielle attempts to hold back giggles, almost as if she’s about to sneeze.

Yup. It’s getting more intimate lately, more of a shared experience. In the name of good literature!
