I find this book inspiring, though tinged with tragedy. Inspiring because it contains some excellent original art and poetry by the very talented Bernhard Pock. Tragic because it was published as a memorial after his early death from AIDS. Pock was the son of Nancy Kwan who contributes a short introduction. The poetry is observational and philosophical. The artwork, ranging from sketches to photographs of Pock's sculptures, reveal an artist of considerable imagination and vision.

Also included are some very eloquent and moving condolence letters sent to Nancy and her partner Norbert Meisel after Bernhard's death.This book and Pock's movie Rebellious stand as his legacy and gift to the world. Well worth checking out.
