BLACK AND BLUE: 
THE BRUISING PASSION OF CAMERA LUCIDA,  LA JETEE, SANS SOLEIL AND HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR (Duke UP, 2012)

The overall effect is hypnotic, aided by the stunning visual affect of the book, its elegant typesetting and the variety of the images that litter the text. . . . a joy to read . . . a veritable feast for the eyesLucy Scholes, The Times Literary Supplement 

Carol Mavor has developed a unique way of responding to images and to their uses by artists and writers: with appetite and fastidious delicacy, she brings the full sensorium synaesthetically into play—Marina Warner

 Black and Blue belongs to a growing number of first-person accounts that have coped with the years 1939–46 and after, including those by Sarah Kofman ... and Jean-Luc Godard
Tom Conley

Black and Blue has a poetic logic of mourning, and its rage to make too much senseBrian Dillon, Art Review
