A Bubble, the artist and musician Geneviève Castrée’s posthumously published last work, is, in essence, a children’s board book. Castrée died in July 2016. She had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer the previous year, four months after she gave birth to her daughter. This knowledge lends A Bubble the quality of a saint’s relic and makes it nearly unbearable to read.
