In the first of a series of posts leading up to the release of Molly’s upcoming memoir, Drawing Blood, we’d like to share with you an image from the book with some of the accompanying text:
We walked through the frozen streets to the Oum Kalsoum Cafe. Over hookahs and sticky sahleb, we decided to catch a bus to the south of France. On a cold Parisian night, whimsy can pass for magic. We found a town too small to have ATMs. The sole hotel had decorated its reception room with butterflies in glass boxes. Above one, the proprietor had written,
“I am sorry. I used to do this but no longer. You’re more beautiful when you are living.”*
–Drawing Blood (Chapter 4) by Molly Crabapple
Butterflies is available in the shop as a 8.5 x 22 giclee print for a limited time.
