The majority of WITH OR WITHOUT YOU is set in Madison, Wisconsin, a city I love a lot. One of the story lines involves Erik, an amateur sculptor, unveiling a commissioned piece in a Madison park. Erik’s sculpture is of a pair of angels, fashioned from steel, who rise up over the park to defend the defenseless. The location in my book is fictional but it’s loosely based on Olin Park.
So I enjoyed reading about this installation by Christopher Murphy that can be found in Madison’s Olin Park. The sculptures are awesome and this picture has a wonderfully creepy vibe. I think it would make an awesome book cover.
