Girls = = = Lonely Boys by Sophie Bédard, translated by Helge Dascher (Pow Pow Press)

Lena Dunham’s Girls might be a few years old now, but it still nails with unapologetic honesty and humour about life as a twenty-something Brooklynite—the age of finding just the right balance between not giving a flying fig and perhaps giving too many figs. Similar to Girls, Sophie Bédard’s Lonely Boys (Pow Pow Press) delivers all the delicious drama of one night stands and broken hearts but in graphic novel format. Three young women navigate the trials of work, sex and romantic relationships, all while keeping their friendship from falling apart. This follow-up to Bedard’s Almost Summer delivers something more mature but sacrifices none of the funny, messy and poignant that the Girls-loving giftee knows and loves.






Emily in Paris = = = Proof I Was Here by Becky Blake (Wolsak & Wynn)

With travel all but impossible these days, Emily in Paris has been the perfect balm to ease the rambling blues of any twenty-something soul (or at least add a bit of background spice to their WFH grind). This confection of a show, is filled with sweet, whimsical, and totally Insta-worthy moments with just a little bit of growing pains. When Emily moves to Paris for a job opportunity, she's faced with the challenge of navigating a new city, learning to be herself, and unlearning her need for approval. Becky Blake’s Proof I Was Here (Wolsak & Wynn) will offer the twenty-something soul on your gift list a similar road to travel down—this time to Barcelona, where Niki is learning more difficult lessons, about art, permanence, and trust. Both stories offer the same need to find answers, to turn the page, to forget the headlines, even if only for a few hours. In this 2020 chaos, your giftee will be grateful to do the same.
