about

This is Marie. Excuse the hair - she's had a long night.

Marie is a girl with the gift of understanding, who is often misunderstood. At home and in her Catholic sixth form, she confounds family, friends and teachers with her innocent attempts to make everybody feel loved.

As we follow Marie from the 1960s to the 1990s, we find out what it means to be a spirited young woman from a religious household who believes that maybe, just maybe, God doesn't care what you do with your body as long as it makes you happy. Because really, what harm can come from loving people?

With exuberant art and trademark lightness of touch, Sarson shows us how attitudes to love, sexuality and religion have changed over the last fifty years.

A beautiful Japanese—influenced graphic novel, this is the debut by the winner of the Myriad First Graphic Novel Competition 2014.
