Ask Ellen James: 2014, 14x21"

This piece is based on John Irving's The World According to Garp. Garp is one of my favorite fiction books, and I have read it many many times - Ellen James is one of the characters in the book. She is a survivor of a brutal rape and mutilation, and she turns on the people who have made her into a cult symbol, in order to write her own story.
