Inspired by the violence of children’s rhymes and the macabre works of artists such as Edward Gorey and Hillaire Belloc, “Pearls & Poison, or The Approriate Amount of Rouge” weaves three haunting cautionary tales about otherwise ordinary women who find extreme solutions for problems thousands of others cope with in more peaceful ways.
