This Young Monster

by Charlie Fox

This Young Monster was first published by Fitzcarraldo Editions, UK.

This Young Monster is a hallucinatory celebration of artists who raise hell, transform their bodies, anger their elders and show their audience dark, disturbing things. What does it mean to be a freak? Why might we be wise to think of the present as a time of monstrosity? And how does the concept of the monster irradiate our thinking about queerness, disability, children and adolescents?

The cover photography for the Australian edition of This Young Monster needed to reflect the horror and playfulness of Charlie Fox’s writing and give the viewer a slightly queasy feeling to engage attention. The cover features two neon PMS colours plus black to help achieve this.
