“There are people who think that things that happen in fiction do not really happen. Those people are wrong.” @neilhimself
Evelyn Evelyn is the dark and disturbing story of conjoined twins, from their tragic birth during which both their parents and their doctor die, and through numerous dysfunctional “homes”, for want of a better word. The backstory of the musical act of Evelyn Evelyn, who bear a striking resemblance to @amandapalmer and Jason Webley, this graphic novel in 2 parts is illustrated in a beautifully dark gothic/ comic style by @cynthiavonbuhler, and is a compelling and beautiful read, if not an easy one. Trigger warnings: religious fanaticism, child pornography and trafficking, animal cruelty

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
