Summary

A bold and frank memoir/graphic novel about a young lesbian, born to Turkish parents in Germany, who messily navigates her coming of age, and her coming out, in a number of locales and cultures – Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands, and America. By doing so, the book is a personal and very contemporary look at cultural and sexual politics; a modern take on dyke life, and the nuances of sexuality and cultural identity.Of course, our precedent in the lesbian-themed graphic novel is the bestselling Blue Is the Warmest Color. Where that book was an earnest (and tragic) love story, this one is lighter and more grounded in contemporary lesbian life; there is much self-deprecating humor as the narrator comes out to her parents (more than once) and navigates the dating world in different cultures.Author Beldan Sezen has a versatile style; she uses different approaches to the text and artwork on every page, making the story dynamic.Sezen is also a filmmaker and cartoonist, and regularly teaches workshops on illustration. She has exhibited her work widely, including in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Wiesbaden, and Beirut.This book was originally published in Italy, and has been translated into English by the author herself.

    The most wonderful time of the year?When Jamison Pritchett is roped into replacing the mall photographer at Santa’s Village two weeks before Christmas, he’s certain he’ll be spending the holidays recovering from a nervous breakdown. A throng of sugar-frenzied kids might be enough to send this uptight photographer back into the darkroom permanently. Inappropriate thoughts about his far-too-attractive—and far-too-young—assistant aren’t helping fight that urge to hide, either.For Noah Hawkins, adulting is a snap. Too bad relationships aren’t. With his business temporarily closed for repairs, he’s happy to help his sister out of a jam, even if the costume he’s given to wear borders on obscene. Constantly being mistaken for a teenager is no treat either, especially when he discovers his temporary new co-worker is sexy as hell and 15 years his senior.Can Noah convince Jamison that age is just a number? Or will Jamison resist the gift Santa seems to be handing him on a peppermint-scented platter?

    Carey English spends his days planning extravagant parties and lavish weddings and generally making people’s lives brighter. He spends his nights wishing for a man he doesn’t have to share and who won’t try to drag him back into the closet. It doesn’t help that the man he wants most doesn’t need a closet to begin with — his straight best friend, Sky. Skyler Wood has been dumped — again — just days before the holiday season, leaving him with an ex-fiancée, a nonrefundable New Year’s Eve getaway rental, and nothing to ring in the New Year but a broken heart. For Carey, rushing off to offer Sky a shoulder will either be the best decision he’s ever made—or it will lead to the worst heartbreak he’s ever experienced.

    As an angel sent to help a struggling soul, getting kidnapped isn't even a blip on Zylen's radar. Before he can connect with Howard, the human he's sent to help, he's taken hostage. He's rescued by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Zylen recuperates in the Horseman of Pestilence's realm, sharing everything he knows, before continuing on his mission. Finally meeting Howard, he experiences something he never has before—attraction. At first, he thinks it's a by-product of spending time in the demon realm. Then Zylen has an epiphany. Howard is his stella guida—his guiding star—the only human in existence whose life would give him more purpose than his duty to his creator. Zylen knows he can't reveal his true nature unless Howard chooses him. Unfortunately, the whole reason he was sent to Howard was to offer guidance as he struggles with a choice—find a girl to date, appeasing his mother, or finally come out. From what Zylen's angelic gifts have shown him, the odds aren't stacked in the coming out category. Between meddling family, homophobic females, and the threat of hunters, can Zylen show Howard what can be between them without revealing his true nature and damning them both?
