Passing for Human
A Graphic MemoirGraphic Novel - 2018 | First edition.
"Passing for Human is what Finck calls 'a neurological coming-of-age story'--one in which, through her childhood, human connection proved elusive and her most enduring relationships were with plants and rocks and imaginary friends; in which her mother was an artist whose creative life had been stifled by an unhappy first marriage and a deeply sexist society that seemed expressly designed to snuff out creativity in women; in which her father was a doctor who struggled in secret with the guilt of having passed his own form of otherness on to his daughter; and in which, as an adult, Finck finally finds her shadow again--and, with it, her true self."--Inside dust jacket.

I love a good outsider story! The author’s memoir is a little bit of everything (Memoir! Creation myth! Odyssey!) and a woman grappling with desire to pass for human. Suggested by Kaley.
