Literary Nonfiction. Art. THE LITTLE BOOK OF TERROR is a treasure that defies easy classification: more than a collection of paintings, more than a compilation of piquant, compelling essays, it can be thought of as a secular missal, offering a new liturgy for observing the Rite of The Contrary. THE LITTLE BOOK OF TERROR is a literary missile, as well—Daisy Rockwell's searing images and carefully-crafted prose aim directly at the bloated heart of Imperial pretension. On impact, Rockwell's work makes rubble of propaganda passing as conventional wisdom, leaving in its place a new vista from which to consider the "Global War on Terror" and its complicated combatants. For Rockwell's legions of readers and admirers, THE LITTLE BOOK OF TERROR is a blast of a different kind: a stirring read, a poignant comment, and a collection of sights not soon forgotten.

Daisy Rockwell paints under the takhallus, or alias, Lapata (pronounced 'laapataa'), which is Urdu for "missing," or "absconded," as in "my luggage is missing," or "the bandits have absconded." She posts her paintings regularly to Flickr, and writes for the blog Chapati Mystery. She has shown her work in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Waterloo, Ontario, and Lenox and North Adams, Massachusetts. Her essays on literature and art have appeared in Bookslut , Caravan and The Sunday Guardian (New Delhi). Rockwell grew up in a family of artists in western Massachusetts, some whose work adorns the surfaces of chinaware and brightens up the waiting rooms of dentists' offices, and others whose artistic output has found more select audiences. From 1992-2006, she made a detour into academia, from which she emerged with a PhD in South Asian literature, a book on Upendranath Ashk and a mild case of depression. Nonetheless, she sometimes still teaches Hindi. She is the author of two publications from Foxhead Books, THE LITTLE BOOK OF TERROR (2012), a collection of paintings and essays, and the novel, TASTE (2014).
