Melancholy and funny, personal and surreal, Passing for Human is a neurological coming-of-age story in which Liana Finck goes in search of that thing she has lost - her shadow, that part of her that has always felt as though she is living in exile from the world. On a quest for self-understanding and self-acceptance, along the way, she seeks to answer some eternal questions: What makes us whole? What parts of ourselves do we hide or ignore or chase away - because they're embarrassing, or inconvenient - and at what cost? Part magical odyssey, part feminist creation myth, Passing for Human is most of all an extraordinary, moving meditation on what it means to be an artist and a woman.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It's impossible not to admire both [Finck's] ambition and the beautiful economy of her line drawings... There is a resonant truth at the heart of this book, and it soars above everything else." -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
"Strangely compelling... gorgeous." -- Teddy Jamieson * Herald Scotland *
"In its ambition, framing, and multiple layers, [Passing for Human] raises the bar for graphic narrative. Even fans of [Liana Finck's] work in the New Yorker will be blindsided by this outstanding book." * Kirkus Review *
"A beautiful, fictionalised memoir combines intelligence and appealingly scratchy artwork with serious soul-searching." * Guardian, 50 of the Biggest Books to Look Out For in Autumn 2018 *
"A sure hit for readers of graphic memoirs." * Booklist *
