Tricksterville Publishing: seeking out the trickster.
Illustrator Michael Woods and author Robert St Cloud introduce Reynard the Fox, their first collaboration exploring the timely relevance of the trickster.
Tricksters are found at frontiers. They hang around doorways, crossroads, borders.
And their shiftiness and slipperiness allow them to move easily between different worlds. This gives them their unique character of the mischief-making outsider.
The trickster exploits the uncertainty of frontiers by crossing the threshold and exposing lies on either side. In the words of Lewis Hyde (in ‘Trickster Makes This World’) “They’re all the same, these tricksters; they have no shame and so they have no silence.”
Reynard the Fox contains extreme sex and violence featuring strong language, cruelty to animals and gore, exposing the hypocrisies of Tricksters in their world and ours, and the pivotal role they play in changing the way we live.
