Tillie Walden's complex, lyrical stories about queer love, fantasy, coming-of-age, and cats are now available in this collection.

In 'The End of Summer, ' Lars is battling illness and boredom in a secluded castle at the start of an endless winter with a giant cat to keep him company and fraying family bonds to test his strength. In 'I Love This Part, ' two small-town girls kill time and try to muddle through school when an unexpected romance blooms. And the surreal 'A City Inside' recounts one woman's life from childhood on, in a poetic tale about coming-of-age when you think you're past all that.

This graphic novel also includes never-before collected early sketches, webcomics, including the short comic 'What It's Like To Be Gay In An All-Girls Middle School, ' which shot Tillie to fame on both sides of the Atlant
