A TRANS-CANADIAN EXPLORATION OF IDENTITY FROM A MULTITALENTED ARTIST AND MUSICIANGenevieve Castree has long been beloved for her mini-comics, comics, visual art, and music. There is a unique quality to all of her artistic endeavors n quiet, serene, depressing. Castree's keen eye for detail and her fearless ability to probe the depths of her troubled past make Susceptible a stirring portrait of an artist coming into her own. Susceptible is the story of Goglu, a daydreamer growing up in Quebec in the e80s and e90s with a single mother. From a skillful artist comes a moving, beautiful story about families, loss, and growing up. Whether she's discussing nature versus nurture or the story of her birth, Castree imbues her storytelling with a quiet power and a confidence in the strength of imagery.
Genevieve Castree was born in Quebec. She has been drawing since the age of two. Castree lives and works in the Pacific-Northwest, where she makes visual art, and records and plays music under the name "' PAON".

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Genevieve Castree:"[Castree] offers three connected minimalist fables dreamily portraying a young woman's reactions to depression, domesticity, and motherhood in delicate watercolors that, thanks largely to her keen graphic skills, make them whimsical without being cloying.' - Booklist"[Castree's work], illustrated in a delicately watercolored style that suggests Richard Scarry in the throes of an Edward Gorey obsession, is an episodic meditation on love, belonging, and personal identity. The visual metaphors for depression and home will break your heart; the care taken with their rendering will join the broken pieces back together on every page.' - Austin Chronicle"We're Wolf is composed of a trilogy of adult fables about happiness, sadness and companionship drawn in a graceful, languid style.' - Publishers Weekly
