One More For the People

by Martha Grover

Published by Perfect Day Publishing

224p, b&w, illustrated, letterpress cover, 5.5"x8.5"


"Eight years in the making, One More for the People is the first collection of Martha Grover's zine Somnambulist, Playful, wry, and conversational, One More for the People chronicles three generations in the Grover family. As these idiosyncratic characters  reluctantly confront adulthood, one Grover is always there to take notes. But after she's diagnosed with a rare and potentially fatal disease (whose 81 symptoms include dramatic changes to her appearance, not to mention the dreaded possibility of having to move back home), One More for the People becomes something unexpected: a survival guide. In the spirit of Lucy Grealy's  Autobiography of a Face, Grover transforms her own misfortune into a tale as unsettling as it is entertaining."
