Henry Darger, Throw Away Boy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Henry Darger, Throw Away Boy free pdf Henry Darger was utterly unknown during his lifetime, keeping a quiet, secluded existence as a janitor on Chicago's North Side. When he died his landlord discovered a treasure trove of more than three hundred canvases and more than 30,000 manuscripts depicting a rich, shocking fantasy world. While some historians tend to dismiss Darger as a psychopath, in Henry Darger, Throw-Away Boy, Jim Elledge cuts through the cloud of controversy and rediscovers Darger as a damaged, fearful, gay man, raised in a world unaware of the consequences of child abuse or gay shame.
