Aisha Franz will be in Toronto, Montreal, and New York this November for the launch of her debut graphic novel, Earthling!
Earthling details a few short days in the life of two sisters and their single mother, exploring the loneliness of everyday life in the suburbs as these women struggle to come to terms with what the world expects of them. Franz presents a narrative rich with surrealist twists and turns, where the peas on the dinner plate and the ads on television can both literally and figuratively speak to the most private strife and deepest hopes in a person’s life. Drawn in deep gray pencil, Earthling is an atmospheric and haunting account of the inevitability of losing the dream worlds of childhood.
Events will feature a slideshow and signing. In Toronto, Aisha Franz will also be in conversation with Ginette Lapalme. This tour is made possible in part by the generous support of the Goethe-Institut.
