As a student of Lacan, Henry Bond shows it is only a step from The Purloined Letter to Murders on the Rue Morgue. Bond leads us to terrain we might prefer not to visit, but those scandalized by his images might recall that ordinary mass culture feeds on them. -- Victor Burgin, European Graduate School for Media and Communication
