Snapshots of a Girl

Snapshots of a Girl

A funny, poignant graphic novel about a young woman's coming out amidst both Islamic and western cultures. Imbued with the candor of Alison Bechdel and the quirk of Lynda Barry, Snapshots of a Girl is a thoroughly modern, pop culture-infused take on dyke life and cultural identity.
