The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors
In this week’s Illustrated PEN, Guest Editor Rob Kirby presents an excerpt from cartoonist Elizabeth Beier’s The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors.
Kirby writes: Elizabeth Beier’s The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors (Northwest Press, 2017) is a wonderfully readable, highly relatable graphic novel detailing Beier’s coming-of-age as a bisexual person. In this excerpt, our heroine makes the acquaintance of a sexy stranger, who looks to be a promising paramour. Beier’s art beautifully captures the giddy, hormonal excitement of mutual attraction in full bloom.
