Pat Graney’s investigation into the lives and culture of girls.

An ATTIC at the top of the house. 

Visceral spirals of constricted physical tasks. 

Changed brain chemistry and isolation. 

Albino moose, rabbits, whales, and an Arctic fox. 

The mundane and the fantastic; violence and beauty. 

A stunning vision of an afterlife. 

ATTIC, the final part of Pat Graney’s House of Mind tryptic, leads us to examine the assault on the lives and culture of girls and to explore the beautiful worlds they create as refugees of that violence.
