We wrap up our discussion of Dorothy Parker’s Elbow: Tattoos on Writers, Writers on Tattoos considering the tattoo’s dark side with Kafka and Tony Hoagland.
This week in our discussion of Dorothy Parker’s Elbow we consider the tattoo and identity — the way a tattoo can broadcast one’s identity, and how it might seem to have the power to create it, impose it, even take it away.
The tattoo has a story, and in many ways is a story. In our discussion of Dorothy Parker’s Elbow this week, we look a the tattoos’ stories and their scars.
Tattoos are permanent and must, therefore, mean something more than “a picture on the skin.” Join our book club discussion on Dorothy Parker’s Elbow.
Whether one is inked from head to toe or repelled by the very notion of a tattoo, there’s no escaping that tattoos fascinate. Join us in September for a new book club selection, Dorothy Parker’s Elbow: Tattoos on Writers, Writers on Tattoos.
