Write a story. A story about yourself. A story about your life.
Now, believe it.
This is Eleanor Davis's first collection of observational, graphic short stories.
Tinged with science fiction and fantasy, these stories are grounded in contemporary life: middle management goes searching for Eden; two sisters, inside environmental suits, say goodbye to their father; people try to fill inner voids with babies and yoga and gluten-free bread.
Davis has been honored by the Eisner Awards, and has won a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators.
How to Be Happy shows she is one of the finest cartoonists of her generation.
