Next Graphic Novel Club Selection

Tuesday, April 6th  | 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. | GoToMeeting*

Desperate Pleasures Book Cover

Desperate Pleasures by M.S. Harkness

Note: The author will be joining us for this event!

“In M.S. Harkness’ (Tinderella) second graphic novel, she weaves in and out of non-relationships, drug dealing, and sex work with the subtlety of a blunt axe. She’s constantly searching for care and fulfillment, but never quite gets it right. Desperate Pleasures is a fearless autobiographical account that contextualizes the inter-relational difficulties of a young woman with years of trauma and abuse. Uncomfortably close-up, filled with dark humor, Desperate Pleasures is an unrelenting read and M.S. Harkness’ best work to date.” –Provided by the publisher

*Contact us for information on how to join and how to get a copy of the book!
