Table of Contents

Praise for Geneviève Castrée:

“[Castrée] offers three connected minimalist fables dreamily portraying a young woman’s reactions to depression, domesticity, and motherhood in delicate watercolors that, thanks largely to her keen graphic skills, make them whimsical without being cloying.” —Booklist

“[Castrée’s work], illustrated in a delicately watercolored style that suggests Richard Scarry in the throes of an Edward Gorey obsession, is an episodic meditation on love, belonging, and personal identity. The visual metaphors for depression and home will break your heart; the care taken with their rendering will join the broken pieces back together on every page.” —The Austin Chronicle

We’re Wolf is composed of a trilogy of adult fables about happiness, sadness and companionship drawn in a graceful, languid style.” —Publishers Weekly
