PHILLIPS, Valerie. Monika Monster Future First Woman on Mars.

(London): Longer Farther Moon, 2005. First edition.  Octavo.  Unpaginated.  The continuation of the photographer’s first book, I Want to be an Astronaut, this with photographs of Monika her dorm room, at her job as a hotel lifeguard, at Coney Island and other locations. The settings and situations impart a degree of generic banality as Monika poses in her swimsuit or with ice cream, yet Philips conveys a refreshing intimacy with her subject as Monika’s candid presence feels simultaneously innocent and worldly, wholesome and lusty.  A very good plus copy in wrappers with integral flaps.
