Praise for Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home
(out July 18!)
“Nicole Georges makes my favorite art about love and vulnerability. More than a tribute to a canine best friend, Fetch maps Georges’s journey from teen to adult with heartbreaking honesty and tender joy. I am in awe of Georges’s uncanny ability to transport me right into her world of moldy, crusty punk houses and glorious vegan lesbian barbecues. Funny, gorgeous, and true.”
—Jill Soloway, creator of Transparent
“From feral child to leader of the pack, Nicole Georges comes to know a thing or two about dogs, and incidentally, about herself. Her luminous, lyrical drawings of animals are charged with strange insight and add a potent nonverbal element to the narrative of Georges’s youth. Fetch combines the best qualities of diary comics—particularity and granular detail—with the zoomed-out view of someone who has completed an arduous, mythic, and expansive journey.”
—Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home and Are You My Mother?
“Nicole’s work always punches me in the guts with her unending longing for a home. Through constant disappointments and the challenges of owning a rescue dog and a rescue heart, she unflinchingly refuses to quit. A magical world so full of tenderness it might just break you, it’s a place I love to visit and rarely want to leave. I want Nicole to draw the whole world, but her hands would fall off.”
— Sarah Shapiro, co-creator of Unreal
