Brain Fetish, by Kinga Korska

Second frame of third page: Second frame of third section

I picked up this graphic novel at Octocon. It's a nice little Bildungsroman of a young woman who's just had a serious row with her boyfriend seeking advice from her mother, who incidentally is getting a tattoo to celebrate her 30th wedding anniversary. There isn't a lot of plot as such, more just general reflection on live, love and the pursuit of happiness in the early years of the 21st century, particularly as they might affect a Polish immigrant in Ireland. The English is not always completely idiomatic (as illustrated above) but the author's heart is in the right place, and with a good editor she could do quite well.

And so ends my bookblogging for 2016!
