"Let's talk about desire"
With these opening words, Sophie Atkinson takes us to "Wonderland," whirling us into a willful world where desire is akin to possession but it's never quite clear who's possessing whom.
Amara may have captured Ginny's heart, but in a world where reality flickers like a poorly-wired TV, maybe Ginny's really just by her own obsession; there's a fine line between getting what we want and letting our wants consume us. And SAND Issue 13 is all about consumption, from feeding a hunger to falling into a feeling...
A way to start is to dive headfirst into our desires, wrap ourselves in our obsessions, keep a record of everything we own. But is anything really ours to keep? Maybe just the hunger. Maybe it's just the wanting that we keep.
