Deluxe signed limited first edition of this acclaimed graphic novel, a moving portrait of late adolescence.
Fine in fine jacket.
"I feel like I want to become a totally different person..."
Enid ("a restless outcast") and Rebecca ("her uneasy counterpart") drift lugubriously through the summer after high school graduation, pushing social and sexual boundaries, and brushing against darker realities in the process. In navigating the real world, the two cynics grapple with the powers and vulnerabilities that come with sexual maturity and adulthood. The comic captures the roiling mindset of two women in the midst of a momentous transition.
A cult classic, signed by Clowes.
