An Age of License
By Lucy Knisley
Fantagraphics Books, 2014. 189 pgs. Graphic Novel
Lucy Knisley has written another nonfiction graphic novel, this one being a sort of travelogue of a trip to Europe where she was invited as a speaker at a comics conference, experienced a romance, and visited friends in Germany and France. The trip was colored by Knisley's self-introspection, facing a point of her life where she is faced with many choices that have the potential to guide her into different paths of adulthood. The theme is nicely touched on throughout the book and reflected in the title. I enjoy Knisley's work, I related to a lot of her experiences, and I believe she is getting better at telling her stories with meaning and heart.
