Calling Dr. Laura
"When Nicole Georges was two years old, her family told her that her father was dead. When she was twenty-three, a psychic told her he was alive. Her sister, saddled with guilt, admits that the psychic is right and that the whole family has conspired to keep him a secret. Sent into a tailspin about her identity, Nicole turns to radio talk-show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger for advice-- Calling Dr. Laura tells the story of what happens to you when you are raised in a family of secrets, and what happens to your brain (and heart) when you learn the truth from an unlikely source"--From publisher's web site.

When a palm reader told Nicole J. Georges that her long-deceased father was very much alive, Nicole's first thought was, "Who does she think she is?" But the psychic was definitely onto something, and Calling Dr. Laura started to take shape.

A really delightful read. I felt like it captured the feel of Portland. Georges is a great storyteller.

I feel like since Fun House, every graphic memoir feels like they need to drop a shocking secret - and none can top that one. Would have liked this more - though I liked it fine - if it had more of every day life in it and less not so mysterious secrets.

when i read on the backflap that Georges is now an animal portraitist, i thought she has finally found her strength and wish that more of the story had been told through the animals, which she draws beautfully and expressively, and whose characters are much more sympathetic and compelling than the humans.
