You'll Grow Out of It
Make Me a Woman
Vanessa Davis is only about ten years younger than me, but reading her memoir comics and sketches I felt like a youth culture voyeur, sort of like I did when I watched the Girls pilot, featuring characters closer to twenty years my junior. Davis was 26-32 when she drew the comics collected here, so maybe my reaction isn't too far-fetched. Anyway, that's not to say that I didn't like her work, not at all! I just felt a little distant from it. Some of the issues, feelings and experiences rang true for me, but as in "I get it," rather than "I feel that."
Ithaka: a Daughter’s Memoir of Being Found
Thanks Kate Haas for telling me to read this graphic memoir about infertility. The comics are detailed and funny, and frequently feature the author’s cat Reuben.
