In her first full-length graphic memoir, Julia Wertz (creator of the cult-hit comic The Fart Party) documents the year she left San Francisco for the unfamiliar streets of New York. Don’t worry—this isn’t the typical redemptive coming-of-age tale of a young woman and her glorious triumph over tragedy or any such nonsense. It’s simply a hilarious—occasionally poignant—book filled with interesting art, absurd humor and plenty of amusing self-deprecation. Box by box, Wertz chronicles four sketchy apartments, seven terrible jobs, family drama, traveling fiascos, and too many whiskey bottles to count.
Julia Wertz was born in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1982 and now lives in Brooklyn, New York. She is the author/illustrator of the Fart Party Volumes 1 and 2, which have nothing to do with farts or parties. She also edited I Saw You, an anthology of comics inspired by real-life missed connection ads. For more information, visit www.fartparty.org.
