Wolf at the Door

"Wolf at the Door" is a collection of Kenyon's recent works, many of which reflect upon and critique the language of market forces, and the way banks and corporations leave individual human experience out of the metaphors they use. Wolf at the Door asks what euphemisms like a debt waterfall, an untapped resource, or a key investment would look like if they reflected the human stories they have unleashed.
