Welcome to Marwencol

In stock (50 items available)
In 2001, Mark Hogancamp was beaten and left for dead outside a bar in his hometown of Kingston, NY in 2000. Waking from a nine-day coma, he had no memory of the thirty-eight prior years of his life. To reconstruct his past, Hogancamp built, in his backyard, Marwencol, an imaginary village set in World War II Belgium, where everybody is welcome, as long as peace is kept. The book is an astonishing story of the redemptive power of art--of art as therapy and act of obsession.
