As a tribute, of sorts, to the deceased musician everyone has been mourning this week, Top Shelf has posted I Think About Whitney by Liv Strömquist. It was originally published in 2010 and collected in the Top Shelf/Galago anthology FROM THE SHADOW OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS, vol 2.
Top Shelf writes: “As in much of her work, Liv uses the life of a celebrity as the inspiration for serious thinking about feminism and everyday life – in this case, domestic abuse.”
