MASTER ROCK. Book Works, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 92 pp. 20 x 12 cm. ISBN 9781906012748 In English.
Publisher's description: In what is both archival document and poetic homage, Belfast-born writer Maria Fusco evokes Ben Cruachan, the largest peak on the west coast of Scotland through three historical voices -- the tunnel tigers, the Irish explosives experts who carved out the mountain for a power station; Elizabeth Falconer, the artist who created a mural inside that only the site's workers see; and Granite, the 450-million-year-old rock of Cruachan itself. This artful publication weaves together Fusco's script, extensive archival black-and-white images documenting Power Station construction, the artist's mural and the deep and powerful voice of the mountain to create a poem of words and images. Based on the performance broadcast conducted live from inside the mountain for BBC Radio 4, UK, October 2015, Master Rock is a quiet but powerful exploration by a woman artist of the drive to conquer -- and feel oneness with -- the forces of nature.
