About this title


Julie Doucet is widely regarded as one of the most prominent cartoonists to emerge in the past decade. Now, Drawn & Quarterly is publishing Doucet's third book, her longest and most ambitious story collected for the first time in one beautifully produced softcover edition. The New York Diary documents in compelling and graphic detail the events in Doucet's life during a six-month period in 1991. At that time, she packed her bags and moved to New York and waiting for her in anticipation was her new boyfriend, an aspiring cartoonist himself who took Julie into his upper west side apartment. The excitement of this new beginning was short-lived; gradually, her boyfriend's over-bearing jealousy became more evident, and the confines of her surroundings slowly became more suffocating. Rounding up this new book are two more stories that complete the obsessive-boyfriend triptych: the sad and revealing "My First Time" and the 25-page "Julie in Junior College".
