Liana Finck presents Passing for Human: A Graphic Memoir
In conversation with Roz Chast
Acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist Liana Finck's new book Passing for Human is a visually arresting graphic memoir about a young artist struggling against what’s expected of her as a woman, and learning to accept her true self. Finck goes in search of that thing she has lost—her shadow, she calls it, but one might also think of it as the “otherness” or “strangeness” that has defined her since birth, that part of her that has always made her feel as though she is living in exile from the world. Melancholy and funny, personal and surreal, Passing for Human is a profound exploration of identity by one of the most talented young comic artists working today. Finck discusses her work with fellow New Yorker cartoonist and graphic novelist Roz Chast at Greenlight.
