From the Publisher:
Loosely based on a teenager’s diary from the 1980s found in a gas-stationbathroom, Unlovable is the remarkable story of Tammy Pierce, as filteredthrough the pen of Los Angeles artist Esther Pearl Watson. This boxed set collectsthe complete, acclaimed two-volume saga of Tammy’s sophomore year ofhigh school in 1989.
Tammy has built a devoted following over the last several years in the pagesof BUST magazine, where Unlovable continues to be serialized on the magazine’sback page, and this beautifully produced, slipcased collection features all832 pages of her sometimes ordinary, sometimes humiliating, often poignant and always hilarious exploits. Her hopes,dreams, agonies and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson’s lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all theeighties essentials — too much mascara, leg warmers with heels and huge hair, etc. — as well as timeless teen concernslike acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Unlovable addresses the mysteries of adolescencethrough Tammy’s naivete; girls and women in particular will find much that resonates, but men will also relate to Unlovable’suniversal humor and wide cast of characters. Tammy’s life isn’t pretty, but it is endlessly charming and hilarious.
This complete edition will be handsomely packaged in an irresistibly sparkly box that would make Tammy proud.
