The Animators - Kayla Rae Whitaker

Regular price $17.00

Francis's Pick:

This debut novel, penned by an author with a maturity that is well beyond her years, traces the close friendship of two artists as they come to terms with past traumas and widespread critical acclaim. Despite its subject matter and the chosen profession of its characters, this underappreciated novel is the farthest thing from twee and quaint. Acerbic, barbed, and brutally honest, it reads the way an R. Crumb drawing or old-school Klasky-Csupo cartoon looks – not without its charms, but lovingly coated in grime and grit.
