About the Author

Julie Doucet was born near Montreal in 1965 and is best known for her frank, funny, and sometimes shocking comic book series Dirty Plotte, which changed the landscape of alternative cartooning. In the 1990s, Doucet moved between New York, Seattle, Berlin, and Montreal, publishing the graphic novels My New York Diary, Lift Your Leg, My Fish is Dead!, My Most Secret Desire, and The Madame Paul Affair in this time. In 2000, she quit comics to concentrate on other art forms; from these experiments emerged the collection of engravings and prints Long Time Relationship, and her one-year visual journal, 365 Days. Her post-comics artwork includes silkscreened artist's books, text-based collages, and animation films.


"[Time Zone J is a] brave and playful graphic memoir that lands as a full-bore visual assault."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Seething, exuberant... Doucet's entire comics oeuvre [is] a lavish history lesson for those who might take today's outpouring of feminist comics for granted."--The New York Times Book Review

"Raunchy brilliance... her open-ended treatment of female identity is still vital."--The New York Review of Books

A trippy, semi-tragic comic that tells the story of an amour fou she shared with a troubled Parisian man in the late '80s. Its full-bleed pages are packed with black-pen renderings of her current middle-aged self, random advertisements, observations, and doodles. Câlice, it's good to have her back.--Vulture, Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2022
