A TRANS-CANADIAN EXPLORATION OF IDENTITY FROM A MULTITALENTED ARTIST AND MUSICIAN
""With mesmerizing honesty Castrée resurrects the obscenely disorienting turning points of a childhood, the ones that haunt a person for a lifetime. After reading the last page I closed the book and wept a little bit about its simple, perfect ending.”
–MIRANDA JULY, author of It Chooses You and No One Belongs Here More Than You
Goglu is a daydreamer with a young working mother, a disengaged stepfather, and a father who lives five thousand miles away. Drawing, punk rock, and the promise of true independence guide Goglu to adulthood while her home’s daily chaos inevitably shapes her identity. Susceptible is a devastating graphic novel debut by Geneviève Castrée; it's a testament to the heartbreaking loss of innocence when a child is forced to be the adult amongst grownups..
Praise for Geneviève Castrée:
“[Castrée] offers three connected minimalist fables dreamily portraying a young woman’s reactions to depression, domesticity, and motherhood in delicate watercolors that, thanks largely to her keen graphic skills, make them whimsical without being cloying.” —Booklist
“[Castrée’s work], illustrated in a delicately watercolored style that suggests Richard Scarry in the throes of an Edward Gorey obsession, is an episodic meditation on love, belonging, and personal identity. The visual metaphors for depression and home will break your heart; the care taken with their rendering will join the broken pieces back together on every page.” —The Austin Chronicle
“We’re Wolf is composed of a trilogy of adult fables about happiness, sadness and companionship drawn in a graceful, languid style.” —Publishers Weekly
