WAS SHE PRETTY GN (D&Q ED)
DRAWN & QUARTERLY
(W) Leanne Shapton
(A/CA) Leanne Shapton
What's left when a relationship ends? Where does jealousy come from? Delicately and sensitively, Leanne Shapton (Swimming Studies
) ruminates on ex-lovers, and our lovers' ex-lovers. Shapton introduces the obsessives and the dilettantes, the poets and the actresses, the people with great hair and the people with idiosyncratic clothes. As funny as it is insightful, Was She Pretty?
speaks to a central human concern: how do we compare? Elegantly drawn and perfectly narrated, the pages of Was She Pretty?
are a testimonial to the power of observation and misapprehension.
