Come Again when you can't stay so long
Come Again When You Can't Stay So Long is a photobook follow-up to Tara Wray's autobiographical documentary film Manhattan, Kansas, about her relationship with her mentally ill mother. The book documents Wray's return to Kansas after a long absence to visit her grandmother, a character from the film. It is a portrait of love, mortality, and the ambivalence of family ties.
Come Again When You Can't Stay So Long comes with a DVD of Manhattan, Kansas (Carnivaleqsue Films, 2006, 79 mins.)
