Two days ago Conundrum Press announced that we'll be working together again on my latest book project, Long Red Hair, which will be released in spring 2015. I'm really excited for this work to be out in the world. It's very different from Photobooth: A Biography in regards to the subject matter, the length, the narrative devices and the artwork (this one will be printed in duotone!) Though I think the readers will recognize my voice as it comes through in the introspection and attention to detail.
The full announcement and details are here. Below is the book's description.
Long Red Hair is Meags Fitzgerald's follow up to her acclaimed Photobooth: A Biography.
In this graphic memoir, Fitzgerald paints a childhood full of
sleepovers, playing dress-up, amateur fortune-telling and renting scary
movies. Yet, Fitzgerald suspects that she is unlike her friends. The
book navigates a child’s struggle with averageness, a preteen’s budding
bisexuality and a young woman’s return after rejection. Fitzgerald takes
us from her first kiss to a life sworn to singlehood, while weaving in
allusions to witches in history and popular culture. Long Red Hair alluringly delves into the mystique of red hair and the beguiling nature of alternative romantic relationships.
