Books Info:

Spit And Passion free pdf At 12 years old, Cristy C. Road was struggling between the balance of the traditions of a Cuban Catholic family and her newfound queer identity. Stuck in a world of mind-numbing suburban conformity, she found salvation in the form of punk band Green Day. She found comfort in the closet, where her love of punk rock developed and fermented into a 'chronic obsession'. Road's angst led her down a path to self-acceptance, until she finally felt she belonged. Spit and Passion is a graphic novel depicting Road's teenage years and the moments that led her to self-acceptance.

About Cristy C. Road

Cristy C. Road is what Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer of Green Day, calls "a BAD ASS"! Born thirty years ago in Miami, she began illustrating and publishing a punk rock zine, "Green'zine." She then published her widely acclaimed graphic memoir, "Bad Habit" (Soft Skull, 2008) and "Indestructible" (Microcosm, 2006), a graphic novel, and started touring nationally and internationally with Sister Spit, with her band, The Homewreckers, and on her own. Her work has appeared on countless record and book covers, in zines, political posters, signs, and in anthologies and magazines. "Spit and Passion" is Road's pre-teen memoir about coming out, finding religion (not what you think), and her chronic obsession with Green Day. She hibernates in Brooklyn, New York.
