Beautiful young woman. Beautiful thoughts beautifully expressed. Focuses us all on what is important in our brief lives. Thank you Alison. I wish you and Maybelle the best.
I think some people who read that this is a "graphic novel" may think it's relentlessly sexually graphic in the sense of "Giving a vivid picture with explicit detail" (one definition of "graphic" in the online Oxford Dictionary). But really it just means that it's 252 pages of pictures (probably averaging about 5 pictures per page), the VAST majority of which have nothing to do with sex. The few frames that do relate to sex are exceedingly tame. Not titillating. Sit down and read it with an open mind. It's very artistic and touching.
I'm reading Vikki's book now. It's a good read, even for someone who will never own or manage a hostel (and has never even stayed in one). Vikki's special personality pervades the Not So Hostel and her book about it. Get a copy!
I'm really going to miss your columns, Will. They have been well-informed and insightful. And, yes, they've hammered away at issues that need to be fixed. It takes courage to keep doing that. Many thanks.
I'm so glad to know about this book. It sounds wonderful.
