The Plague Doctor in His Hull-Shaped Hat

By Stephen Massimilla ’86. Stephen F. Austin State University Press. November 2013. The grotto, the seagull, the octopus, the unicorn, the schizophrenic, the suicide, the scarecrow, the ravaged artichoke– all take on the oracular quality of the talisman and the destiny of the mirror in the stricken cosmos of Stephen Massimilla’s The Plague Doctor in the Hull-Shaped Hat.
