By Moa Romanova, translated by Melissa Bowers
A dating site match goes really wrong in this troubling, funny graphic memoir. Things seem to be looking up when Moa Romanova -- broke, depressed, and living in a squat above an old store -- matches with a very famous celebrity on a popular hook-up site. Not only does the 53-year-old man like Moa -- he also immediately validates and motivates her in a way that not even her therapist does, even offering to help financially support her artistic ambitions. However, Moa soon discovers that there are strings attached. Drawn in a style that's de Chirico by way of the '80s, Romanova's relatable graphic memoir is a thought-provoking debut.
