520    Self-described as "an infertile, high-femme, low income, 
       non-biological Jewish mom, dyke drama queen, and ectopic 
       pregnancy survivor," the author tells her story in this 
       formally innovative graphic memoir. 
520    "Shira Spector literally paints a vivid portrait of the 
       most eventful 10 years of her life, encompassing her 
       tenacious struggle to get pregnant, the emotional turmoil 
       of her father's cancer diagnosis and eventual death, and 
       her recollections of past relationships with her parents 
       and her partner. Set in a kaleidoscope of Montreal and 
       Toronto, Red Rock Baby Candy unfolds as one of the most 
       formally inventive comics in the history of the medium. It
       begins in subtle, tonal shades of black ink, introduces 
       color slowly over the next 50 pages until it explodes into
       a glorious full color palette. The irreverent characters 
       begin to bloom and to live life fully, resurrecting the 
       dead in order to map the geography among infertility, 
       sexuality, choice, and mortality. The drawing is visceral,
       symbolic, and naturalistic. The visual storytelling 
       eschews traditional comics panels in favor of a series of 
       unique page compositions that convey both a stream of 
       consciousness and the tactile reality of life, both the 
       subjective impressions of the author at each moment of her
       life and the objective series of events that shape her 
       narrative. It is the most formally revolutionary visual 
       storytelling since Emil Ferris's My Favorite Thing is 
       Monsters. Full-color illustrations throughout."--Amazon.
