New Stuff This Week

tomboyTomboy: A Graphic Memoir by Liz Prince $15.99 - Tomboy follows Liz Prince through her early years and explores—with humor, honesty, and poignancy—what it means to “be a girl.” From staunchly refuting ”girliness” to the point of misogyny, to discovering through the punk community that your identity is whatever you make of it, Tomboy offers a sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking account of self-discovery in modern America.

ageoflicense
Age of License by Lucy Knisley (Fantagraphics) $19.99 - Knisley's comics travel memoir recounts her adventures, punctuated by whimsical visual devices (such as a "new experiences" funnel), peppered with the cute cats she meets along the way, and features drawings and descriptions of food that will make your mouth water. Her experiences are colored by anxieties, introspective self-inquiries, and quotidian revelations — about traveling alone in unfamiliar countries, and about her life and career.
