Her Coat of Red Roses
When I open my eyes, the world is grey. Just as it was
yesterday and the day before that day and the day
before that. It’s like I’m trapped in one of those old
black and white films, except the credits never roll…
In the brief yet explosive Her Coat of Red Roses, author Leena Nox takes her readers on a tantalizing trip into the mind of her main character and the contrasts of colour that guides that character’s life. Setting the stage for her reader in a world dominated by grey, Leena is able to compellingly use the colours of her writing to carry the narrative of her striking vignette forward.
Leena Nox is the Gold Writer of the ArtAscent Grey call for writers. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Grey issue.
