Kleuren die pijn doen

Kleuren die pijn doen - Cintra Wilson, Peter Abelsen Hilarious, cynical, and witty! Colours Insulting to Nature is an on the mark critique of celebrity worship and the hunger for fame. At the same time it exposes the decadence of both 'glamorous' and 'underground' lifestyles.

Wilson also has a talent for creating memorable characters, from the protagonist Lisa's horrible mother Peppy Normal, to the black porn midget Delvonn D'Shawn and the pseudo elven Quenya-mumbing Greg 'Greycoat' Coates.
