Daphné B. & Kathy L. launch "I Love Dick, a fanfic" with Julie Delporte & Marcela Huerta

As long fans of Kraus’ writing and the genre-blurring style which it emblemizes, Kate L. and Daphné B. began writing and sharing their own letters to Dick over the summer.

I Love Dick (a fanfic), is a post-internet iteration of the feminist cult classic written in the 90s. The letters analyze a variety of contemporary phenomenon and cultural objects such as celebrity, memes, Google Translate, pop songs, and Vegas, through the lens of female desire and feminism. The text is interwoven with images: screenshots of internet image browsing and Youtube playlists. At the intersection of artist book, zine, and fanfiction, it is a funny, subversive, and thoughtful reflection on love, desire, and art. 

The zine will be launched at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Bernard O.) on December 1st at 7:00 pm where authors Kate Lewis, Daphné B., Julie Delporte and Marcela Huerta will partake in a discussion on female writing and desire.

KATHY L. is a part-time bookseller and artist based in Montreal.
