Persephone’s Garden by Glynnis Fawkes

Product in stock

Price: $21.95


“Few cartoonists capture a life being lived better than Glynnis Fawkes. Her comics are concocted from small joys, great sorrows, and of being in the present moment while also being painfully aware of the passage of time. Glynnis is one of my favorite cartoonists and this collection of deft observations and wry musings are by turns poignant and hilarious and collectively they add up to something greater than the sum of their parts: a low-key masterpiece by a brilliant and generous artist.”

- James Sturm, author of The Golem's Mighty Swing, and Off Season

A children's song inspires a love of Greek mythology in a young girl. A young woman finds a career in archeology and illustration. A young mother sees her daughter become a woman, as her own mother's memories are lost. Persephone's Garden is a deeply personal story and an inventive study of girlhood, womanhood and motherhood, through memory, history and mythology.

8" x 6.". Full color. 272 pages.
