The Reason She Left and Other Stories

The Reason She Left and Other Stories

Ratings: (0)|Views: 147 |Likes:
A young woman in search of wholeness...

Nettie Olsen feels like a stranger in the Citadel of Reason, a place where logic rules over impulse, light over darkness, and all positive dualities dominate the negatives. Which would be all right... except Nettie's upbringing has led her to believe that being born female means being born on the wrong side of the equation...and there's therefore something wrong with her.

In The Reason She Left, Kristen Caven’s follow-up to Perfectly Revolting: My Glamorous Cartooning Career, she and her characters cleverly explore ideas about dualism, perception, linguistics, feminism, post-modernism, and war. Other Stories elaborate on dreams, love, animals, road trips, feet, and more, with intelligence, insight and humor.
Early feedback includes:

"It's awesome, and so different from anything I've ever read!"

"I participated in the second wave of feminism, and sometimes when I look around me now, it's unclear whether the philosophical bases took hold. How refreshing to experience the growing-up story of another woman pondering similar questions from the perspective of a younger generation!"

"Kristen Caven brings the disciplined imagination of a thousand ballerinas and the incisive wit of a Gary Larson to her graphic essays on life, love, education, and the real meaning of everything. Hers is a decidedly woman's vision and voice - a woman who has come of age, with full awareness of how she got there."

"Brava, brava, Kristen Caven! You have given us a lot to think about, look back upon - and peer into the future for!"
