The Grid goes in-depth with Geneviève Castrée

“Tragic comics” / The Grid TO / Tara-Michelle Ziniuk / February 16, 2013

Quebec-bred, Washington State–based Geneviève Castrée is a comic artist, writer, illustrator, and musician with a backstory that will make your heart ache. In her semi-autobiographical graphic novel, Susceptible, Castrée revisits her ’80s childhood and ’90s adolescence in small-town and suburban Quebec, and describes, through the eyes of her protagonist, Goglu, the burden of having to be the grown-up in a world of unpredictable adults. We asked Castrée, who wrote Susceptible in French and translated it herself, to explain what’s going on in one of the scenes from her book.
