GRAPHIC CONTENT WARNING: Ulli Lust's sprawling, vivid autobiography depicts the trials and tribulations of a teen runaway with the unflinching honesty one would expect from the self-portrait she paints on the page. Frank discussions of sexuality and other adult material are important parts of her story, and as such, reader discretion is strongly advised.
A long, dense, sensitive, and minutely observed autobiographical masterpiece recalling the summer of 1984, when the artist, a rebellious, punked-out 17-year-old, hitchhiked her way across Italy. 2011 Angoulême prize winner.
"Ulli Lust really nails my favorite part of storytelling. Bumming cigarettes, learning how to hitchhike -- the small details that create great character." -- Jaime Hernandez
