THE STORY OF MY TITS is one of the year's best graphic novels!
November 12, 2015
Congratulations to Jennifer Hayden — her ambitious, hilarious, heartbreaking graphic memoir The Story of My Tits continues to earn rave reviews, and was announced today as one of the Best Books of 2015 by both Amazon.com and Library Journal!
"I wanted something that would take my voice and transmit it to the reader as easily as if I was having a beer with them at the kitchen table," explains Hayden in a new interview with Publishers Weekly. "I wanted that informality and immediacy." Readers have embraced the result, which goes far beyond a breast-cancer narrative to a page-turning exploration of adolescence, adulthood, family, love, and grief. "I set out to tell a survivor's story that would be the story of a woman, and the last chapter is cancer — not a cancer story per se."
Jennifer's next appearance is next Saturday, November 21, at the Miami Book Fair.
Read a 12-page sample of this landmark book and see why critics call it "everything a graphic memoir can and should be"!
