In this intimate comic journal, Eleanor Davis documents her experience biking from Tucson, Arizona toward her home in Georgia. By eschewing the formality of a traditional travel memoir, Davis's account feels rough but genuine. The sparse uncomplicated illustrations complement the author's quiet introspection--they echo the desolate stretches of highway that fill the space between her thoughts. Its the perfect finish-in-one-sitting-then-cry kind of graphic novel, and it holds a special place on my bookshelf.
I was hooked when I first saw the title. Following the success of their multi-media performance tour of the same name, Gender Failure is a collaborative account of the authors' complicated relationships with gender. A mixed collection of memories, song lyrics, pictures, and illustrations offer the reader a tangible view of the authors' understanding of gender and themselves. The stories are relatable, human; simultaneously funny and heartbreaking. The duo remind me how beholden most of us are to the binary. Let's follow their example and retire from gender altogether.
