This graphic novel is about three Asian, book-loving women (Shirin, Nina and Silvia) who are excited to work in the publishing industry, but have no idea what that actually entails.
These women share their working experiences with each other as they are also sharing an apartment. They deal with money issues, microaggressions, and relationships. Oddly enough, the women discover that their neighbor is a Booker Prize winning author who has been dubbed the “tampax Tolstoy” by the press. After these women befriend their elderly neighbor, they find inspiration in her journey.
This novel is charming and very witty with wonderful black and white illustrations.
