Passing For Human: A Graphic Memoir
A visually arresting graphic memoir about a young artist struggling against what's expected of her as a woman, and learning to accept her true self, from an acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist. In this achingly beautiful graphic memoir, Liana Finck goes in search of that thing she has lost - her shadow, she calls it, but we can also think of it as the "otherness" or "strangeness" that has defined her since birth, that part of her that has always felt as though she is living in exile from the world. In Passing for Human, Finck is on a quest for self-understanding and self-acceptance--and along the way, she seeks to answer some eternal questions: What makes us whole? What parts of ourselves do we hide or ignore or chase away - because they're embarrassing, or inconvenient, or just plain weird - and at what cost?
