This cinematic tale opens surrealistically: with a traffic jam
caused by a wounded elephant. Our heroine, Carice, abandons her car
and walks trancelike through a wood to visit her husband in the
hospital. Along the way she meets a few odd characters, including a

do not stop there. The hospital is eerie and foreboding. When
Carice's whistling wakes up an apparently dead body in the morgue,

Praise for "Pachyderme: "
"Peeters' tale of self-discovery is enthralling; in the author's

"Peeters' evocative artwork--inspired equally, it seems, by
classic Hollywood and the great horror comics of mid-century--makes
every page eye-catching." --Slate
