She’s lonely and searching for connection.
He’s lonely, but afraid to reach out.
But is finding someone else really the answer to their problems?
CRUSHING, an illustrated misadventure in love and loneliness, is a story told in silence – a story about connections in the big city – making them, missing them and longing for them. Achingly beautiful, subtly defiant and full of humour and quiet wisdom, Sophie Burrows’ debut graphic novel is a unique meditation on the human condition in the 21st century, and a timely examination of millennial life in an age of isolation.
Sometimes, words aren’t enough.
