One of the Best Graphic Novels of the Year — Library Journal
Gabrielle Bell returns with a brilliant new collection of hilarious short stories. From a revisionist Red Riding Hood, to uncomfortable role reversals, Gabrielle Bell revels in skewering modern mores with razor-sharp humor and wry observations. Culled from The New Yorker, Paris Review, and Medium, including several brand new previously unpublished gems, Inappropriate collects Bell’s best short comics form the last couple of years.
Praise for The Voyeurs:
"As she watches other people living life, and watches herself watching them, Bell's pen becomes a kind of laser, first illuminating the surface distractions of the world, then scorching them away to reveal a deeper reality that is almost too painful and too beautiful to bear."
— Alison Bechdel, Fun Home
"The Voyeurs is the work of a mature writer, if not one of the most sincere voices of her literary generation. It's a fun, honest read that spans continents, relationships and life decisions. I loved it."
— Chris Ware, Acme Novelty Library
"A master of the exquisite detail, Bell provides a welcome peephole into our lives."
— Françoise Mouly, The New Yorker
"One of the Best Nonfiction Books of the year."
"One of the Best Graphic Novels of the year."
"Best Graphic Memoir."—The Atlantic Wire
"One of the best things going in auto-bio inflected comics these days."
— Art Spiegelman
