Sensitive Creatures PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Sensitive Creatures free pdf Wonderfully off-beat, Mandy Ord's stories reveal with poetic power the intimate, mundane and extraordinary moments in everyday urban life. From spammers who take over your email identity or dealing with a dead rat, to putting out flames in a train station bin or how to warm your feet in winter, the experiences and reflections of Mandy's one-eyed girl will put you in touch with what really matters. 'The small crises of daily life, the ink cluttered streets, the pockets of joy and ugliness, and one big eyeball taking it all in. Just like the city she describes, Ord's lines converge with a strange and nervous beauty that criss crosses into itself. Honest, perceptive and captivating.' Shaun Tan 'Mandy Ord's stories revel in both the grotesquerie and the wonder of life - often simultaneously. Domestic warfare, dogs, extravagantly bearded men and bread rolls that resemble an arse are addressed with humour, tenderness and lots of wonderful, chunky black ink. Mandy's hugely likeable one-eyed narrator invites us to share her curiosity about her fellow humans, and to come away with our own sensitivities just a little bit closer to the surface.' Nicki Greenberg 'In Mandy Ord's comics you witness an artist using words and pictures as a mode of thinking.' Bernard Caleo.
