"Honest and charming...[Georges] makes her debut as a developed and skilled storyteller."
-Cleveland Plain Dealer
"A bracing debut from a promising graphic novelist that deals with abuse, forgiveness, and family secrets."
"There's a depth to Georges' work...an intense interest in finding out not just who she is but what it means and why it matters."
A "tart, honest graphic memoir."
"A tragicomic graphic memoir with a stunning indie aesthetic."
“An engrossing, lovable, smart and ultimately poignant trip through a harrowing emotional bottleneck in family life. It's great art, great writing, a great story – I can't wait for what's next from Nicole. What a wonderful book.”
"Engaging...incisive...The author approaches [her story] with the tenacity of a detective."
"Nicole Georges spins a riveting family mystery. There's a powerful chemistry going on between her delicate drawings and the probing honesty of her investigations. CALLING DR. LAURA is disarming and haunting, hip and sweet, all at once."
"I wouldn't want to live in a world without Nicole! And now no one has to! This book is a charming little gem. An honest glimpse into the life of a self-employed, smart and witty Portland femme gay with an upbringing so weird it's normal."
"Anyone who knows Portland, OR. will know Nicole J. Georges, the witty girl with the cat glasses and a devoted following for her talents as an illustrator and zinester . . . Whatever the results, one can bet that this new work from Georges will be a good time."

Ah, the memoir-by-a-person-without-a-story. It has become all too common a genre. It takes a considerable amount of arrogance to write (and/or draw) a memoir when you're young:... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Ry
