Back in print is the classic graphic novel by the acclaimed (though no longer working in comics) iconic artist Julie Doucet. In My New York Diary - one of the first contemporary graphic novels - Doucet abruptly packs her bags and moves to New York. Trouble follows her in the form of a jealous boyfriend, insecurity about her talent, her worsening epilepsy, and a tendency to self-medicate with booze and drugs.

About the Author

Julie Doucet was born near Montreal in 1965 and is best known for her frank, funny, and sometimes shocking comic book series Dirty Plotte, which changed the landscape of alternative cartooning. In the 1990s, Doucet moved between New York, Seattle, Berlin, and Montreal, publishing the graphic novels My New York Diary, Lift Your Leg, My Fish is Dead!, My Most Secret Desire, and The Madame Paul Affair in this time. In 2000, she quit comics to concentrate on other art forms; from these experiments emerged the collection of engravings and prints Long Time Relationship, and her one-year visual journal, 365 Days. Her post-comics artwork includes silkscreened artist's books, text-based collages, and animation films.
