Welcome to the Logan Square Branch Graphic Novel Book Club! Books are available at the Logan Square Branch Circulation Desk.
Join us in celebrating Latinx Heritage Month as we read and discuss Jessica Abel's La Perdida.
"Carla Olivares, a young Mexican-American woman, goes to Mexico City to try to get in touch with her Mexican side. She's got her own, distorted ideas about what that means, and her annoyance with an old boyfriend who's leading his idea of the romantic expatriate life (by hanging out exclusively with other expats) makes her even more nervous about coming off like an outsider. She starts hanging out with a bunch of local lowlifes and blowhards who feed her guilt about being a privileged 'conquistadora' They talk big (about stardom and revolution), but barely scrape by on petty crime-which eventually becomes not so petty, and sucks Carla into a vortex of fear and violence." --Publisher's Weekly
