Abstract:

Boully reads between the lines of a text--in this case J.M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy--and emerges with the darker underside, with those sinister or subversieve places merely echoed or hinted at.

"'Sewing,' 'pockets' and 'stories' being things that don't quite exist in the Neverland, Jenny Boully's not merely because of the unknown that was stalking toward them sews pockets in and around the mythos of J.M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy. Cutting snippets of Barrie's source text, including Barrie's Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens and events in Andrew Birkin's J.M. Barrie & the Lost Boys, Boully centralizes Wendy's experience and sews up bits of her story, stitching the make-believe into the made-quite-real. In her pockets, open ends and open endings fit and hover"--Lantern review blog, 2011 Dec. 20.
