Another of Shapton's books is once again available to us: Drawn & Quarterly is republishing Was She Pretty?, which conjures the qualities and peculiarities of everyone's exes, creating a sort of mosaic of jealous fixation and anxiety. It's also humourous and highly relatable! How do we contend with the people who came before us in the lives of our loves?
Are you jealous of the ex who is a famous activist?
What about the ex who sends letters for years from an unknown address?
And what to do about the dreaded tell-all novel written by the ex with literary ambitions?
Don't miss Leanne Shapton and Adrian Tomine in Montreal on February 5 at the Rialto Hall!
