In Justin Maurer’s new book Seventeen Television (Vol 1 Brooklyn), these mostly true stories ebb, flow and burn through heart breaking and illuminating moments in his life. Seven humor-filled tales delve into family crisis, dead-end jobs and international exploits.

He has been featured on podcasts and radio shows such as Life Before Wartime (KBOO), Cherry Blossom Clinic (WFMU) and Skid Row Radio. His first book, Don’t Take Your Life (Future Tense Books) received much critical acclaim. He has recorded and toured extensively with his punk bands Clorox Girls, Suspect Parts, LA Drugz and Maniac. He works and lives in Los Angeles.

Cassandra Troyan is an artist, writer, and filmmaker who is interested in getting blunted. She is the author of THRONE OF BLOOD (Solar Luxuriance 2013), and forthcoming in Fall 2013, The Things We Embody Are The Things We Destroy (Tiny Hardcore Press 2013). She curates the reading and performance series EAR EATER in Chicago, IL where she currently lives and works.

Geneviève Castrée Presents & Signs Susceptible 2/16

Feb ’13
7:00 pm

Goglu is a daydreamer with a young working mother, a disengaged stepfather, and a father who lives five thousand miles away. Drawing, punk rock, and the promise of true independence guide Goglu to adulthood while her home’s daily chaos inevitably shapes her identity. Susceptible is a devastating graphic novel debut by Geneviève Castrée about the heartbreaking loss of innocence when a child is forced to be the adult among grownups

Praise for Geneviève Castrée:

“With mesmerizing honesty Castrée resurrects the obscenely disorienting turning points of a childhood, the ones that haunt a person for a lifetime. After reading the last page I closed the book and wept a little bit about its simple, perfect ending.” –Miranda July,authorofitchoosesyouand noonebelongsheremorethanyou

“[Castrée] offers three connected minimalist fables dreamily portraying a young woman’s reactions to depression, domesticity, and mother hood in delicate watercolors that, thanks largely to her keen graphic skills, made them whimsical without being cloying.” –Booklist

“[Castrée’s work], illustrated in a delicately watercolored style that suggests Richard Scarry in the throes of an Edward Gorey obsession, is an episodic

meditation on love, belonging, and personal identity. The visual metaphors for depression and home will break your heart; the care taken with their rendering will join the broken pieces back together on every page.” —The Austin Chronicle

GENEVIÈVE CASTRÉE was born in Quebec. She has been drawing since the age of two. Castrée lives and works in the Pacific Northwest, where she makes visual art, and records and plays music under the name Ô PAON.
