At age ten, Rachael Smith was going to group meetings to help her handle her dad’s alcoholism.

From the award-winning author of Quarantine Comix, Wired Up Wrong and Stand in Your Power, this is another extremely honest and relatable auto-bio comic shining a light on the realities of mental health with humour, warmth and insight.

Rufus the cat (recent star of a New Yorker cartoon) and Barky, the giant black dog inside her head, are returning characters fans of Rachael Smith will be heartened to be reunited with.

‘Rachael Smith’s trademark bittersweet, funny and very personal comics make for the perfect chronicle of the weird times we’ve been living through. They are funny and sad and relatable and wise.’ Chris Addison

‘It’s no wonder people respond strongly to Rachael’s work. Brave is a term people like to bandy around about personal comics, but it’s appropriate sometimes. The real wonder of her work is the easy comic touch.’ Kate Beaton
