Summary
In developing her unique vision, Duncan draws on literature, history, psychoanalysis, and law. Her work reveals a non-utopian world in which criminals and non-criminals - while injuring each other in obvious ways - nonetheless live together in a symbiotic as well as an adversarial relationship, needing each other, serving each other, enriching each other's lives in profound and surprising fashion
