The first full-length Graphic Memoir from one of the masters of the form. When her mother’s remote home burns to the ground, leaving her with only the clothes on her back and a favorite dog, Gabrielle and her brother have to return to Northern California to help a woman who is a stranger to them both. And when her own apartment in Brooklyn is itself damaged in a fire, Gabrielle is forced to examine a past of violence and hardship, and confront a present that is making its own challenging demands. Told over the course of a year in her signature funny, digressive style, Everything is Flammable unfolds with a brutal yet vulnerable honesty that has become the trademark of Bell’s brilliant cartoon diaries.
