Description

It feels like a clash between past and present, an identity crisis, and an infinite possibility scenario. Battling isolation and suicidal thoughts through the Covid-19 pandemic, she focuses on concrete goals: attending a comic book convention in London, meeting an online crush in the U. Thorogood depicts her depression as a huge black monster (kind of reminiscent of Hiyao Miyazaki's art) following her around and being her constant companion. In my life I'm in a pretty good place, and so reading this I can appreciate her honesty while also not feeling myself going back to that part in my life.

Thorogood's courageous honesty is supported by her hilarious deadpan humor and then tied all together by her absolutely insane artistic vision. This is the sort of book I'm going to have to read over and over, and take another look at every once in a while to help digest it. For instance, she knows we have to in some sense "like" her if it is a memoir even one about such an intimate subject.

Following the release of her well-received debut graphic novel, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott , Thorogood finds that artistic success is no cure for lifelong depression, which she draws as a looming Babadook-like monster.

The story follows Zoe writing this book about writing herself for a period of six months, though it sways through the timeline of her entire life as well as into more abstract realms of her creative mind. You can always find the big, heavy quotations that attempt to maximize the beauty into a universal struggle for goodness and connectivity that improves us all, like Leo Tolstoy saying art ‘ is a means of union among men, joining them together in the same feelings, and indispensable for the life and progress toward well-being of individuals and of humanity,’ but whew, if this is at a party it’ll kill the vibes pretty quickly. Thorogood is something of a paradox, she can draw herself as an attractive, cute character whilst resolutely refusing to recognise that anyone else might see her as attractive or cute.Following the release of her well-received debut graphic novel, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott, Thorogood finds that artistic success is no cure for lifelong depression, which she draws as a looming Babadook-like monster.
