Hark, A Vagrant!, by Kate Beaton



A collection of Canadian comics artist Beaton's pieces, mainly from her website, mainly on literature. I love the Brontë sisters piece that opens the collection and have linked to it before; I must admit some of the other material didn't tick my personal boxes, and I also felt that the author isn't always trying very hard with the art - perhaps that's part of the point, but it spoils my enjoyment. Still, there are enough fun moments here to justify it.

I had somehow never heard of this till my friend gave me the book for my birthday.

You probably have to be Canadian, but the Canadian history stuff is hilarious.

The humour resonated with me so much that I had to check to see whether she was a Trent graduate. She's not, but she went to Mount Allison, which is the Maritime version of Trent - university in a small town which is otherwise a complete shithole, so you have to make your own entertainment. I find I bond similarly with people in the UK who went to Lampeter.
