Praise For…


Praise for Brazen by Pénélope Bagieu:"Bagieu's pen transforms these true stories into something that has the tone of a personalized fairy tale. And in the end, this turns out to be just perfect." -- The New York TimesPraise for California Dreamin': Cass Elliot Before The Mamas & the Papas by Pénélope Bagieu:"Bagieu's drawings are superlative: soft pencil lines that convey detail without constraining her figures and that animate the characters' exuberant facial expressions." -- The Paris ReviewPraise for Exquisite Corpse by Pénélope Bagieu:"Pénélope Bagieu has mastered a magic trick... she can turn paper into flesh. And ink becomes lifeblood... her characters not only breathe and pulsate with vivid life. They also seem entirely, organically authentic in their own skin." -- The Washington Post
