angelsAngels presents a new genre, an illustrated short story for adults. Set in inner city Detroit, this is a tale of a family beset by the traumas of drug addiction, adultery, prison, violence as well as the joys of sexuality, love and, especially, children. The mother, desperate when he husband is sent to prison, becomes a stripper to support her two daughters, her angels. 
Both the story and the collage illustrations are done by Ann Pearlman. The images of both eroticism and violence are tasteful.

While writing, Ann sees scenes playing out in her mind’s eye. Combining pictures with the narrative was her way to share some of her images while words flowed. This is the first in a series of storybooks that contain the thrill of illustrations we loved in books as kids with narratives slated for adults.
