Zilla Tasted the Sky

tunnel book bound on one edge, 5 1/2 x 7, 2012

Zilla Tasted the Sky is a short illustrated story written in antimetabole, a rhetorical device: each sentence is followed by a mirror sentence in which the same words are rearranged to create a new grammatical sentence, and thus, a new possibility for interpretation. The antimetabole form creates tension between cause and effect, forcing readers to question the agency of the character Zilla as well as the agency of other elements of the story.
