Back in print, at last, this, perhaps our favorite of Ms. Doucet's collections, is presented here in an elegant hardcover edition that is in every way superior to the original of ten years ago, yet, amazingly, is priced less! Those crazy kids at Drawn & Quarterly -- how do they do it? For those of you who don't know what the fuss is about, Julie Doucet is one of the select torch bearers of the surrealistic confessional school of comics. This volume is dominated by graphic recountings of her vivid dreams, many of which center on her unconscious relationship with that most intimate aspect of the male anatomy. Doucet's intuitive grasp of the symbolic capacities of comics enables her to give lucid -- occasionally unnerving, often hilarious -- visual signification to the stress, anxiety, fear and loathing which are an all too familiar part of our lives.
