Artist/Author Bios

A collaborative graphic melodrama of romance, crime and passion, A Girl's Life addresses adolescent angst in all of its fashionably gory details. The snares and pitfalls of contemporary life, which all girls must struggle with to survive, are here revealed through darkly comic and fiendishly noir prose, accompanied by lurid collage and wildly adventurous typography.

"What happens when two brilliant avant-garde artists collaborate? A wild carnival of collage, color, design and lines like 'Decorum had its way with her.' Or: 'Her outfit ached against my thigh.' Any sentimental image of a girl's life we might have is overexposed, self-titillated and deconstructed. It's dazzling. It's funny. It's a riot." —Rosmarie Waldrop

"When 'image is everything,' any girl's life hits the top of the cultcrit charts. It's a REVOLUTION OF THE WORD. Way past post post-modern. Pre-Omega Point. Like totally!... Read this outrageous, funny and touching book and don't be clueless anymore." —Jerome McGann
