"One of the most promising of the younger graphic novelists." -Charles McGrath, New York Times MagazineConsidered by many to be the most influential female cartoonist ever, Julie Doucet created an iconic body of work in the 10 years she devoted to her ground-breaking comic book series, Dirty Plotte. Her comics are densely inked and detailed with a pulsing neurosis from a decidedly female point of view. When the series debuted it set the comic book world on its head.Doucet returns to comics after a five-year hiatus with a reworked edition of her dream journal My Most Secret Desire, complete with never-before-published material.Regarded as Doucet's most innovative work, My Most Secret Desire explores the longings, pressures and exploits of the feminine subconscious. Nightmarish tales of pregnancy, menstruation, sex changes and boyfriends haunt her nocturnal psyche with a feverish and surreal pitch."[Doucet's] honesty is unsettling, but funny, too ... It's on the cutting edge." -Entertainment Weekly"Julie Doucet is the female R. Crumb." -Village Voice
Julie Doucet (Montreal) has two art books, Long Time Relationship and Lady Pep. Her critically acclaimed comic book series Dirty Plotte has been collected into the graphic novels My New York Diary and Lift Your Leg, My Fish Is Dead.
