In the Course of Human Events / Mike Harvkey
Human EventsIssue 20 is still fresh in the world, but this Monday we've got a new review for you to check out. Staff member Colter Ruland reads and reviews In the Course of Human Events: "Mike Harvkey has created a work that’s as stylistically hyperrealistic as its topic is incendiary. The stakes are constantly getting higher, and it’s terrifying to watch as Clyde Twitty increasingly uses violence as a way to discharge his voice, his desire to be someone that matters."
