Heads Or Tails

Overview

Overview

This is an award-winning, one-woman anthology of short comics fiction, which previously appeared in books such as Best American Nonrequired Reading.
The comics collected in Heads or Tails display a virtuosic breadth of visual styles and color palettes, each in perfect service to the story; they range from experimental one-pagers to masterpieces like “The Thing About Madeline” (featured in The Best American Comics 2008), to novellas like “The Carnival” (featured in David Sedaris’ and Dave Eggers’ 2010 Best American Nonrequired Reading). Carré’s elegant stories read like the gothic family narratives of Flannery O’Connor or Carson McCullers. Poetic rhythms—a coin flip, a circling Ferris wheel—are punctuated by elements of melancholic fantasy, and are pushed forward by character-driven, naturalistic dialogue.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Carre, author of The Lagoon, has a new collection out, a scrapbook of strange and beautiful stories. Dark and surreal moments fill most of these pages. A soap saleswoman is slowly forced out of her routine and her life by a mysterious doppelgänger. An opinionated professional flower arrangement judge survives a car accident only to lose his critical compass. And an entire city awakens to a sound that everyone interprets differently. Carre’s visual exploration and experimentation also work wonders for her stories, as she switches between styles and colors with each story. Her willingness to try anything is evident in one short comic that echoes the structure of Cloud Atlas’s stories within stories within stories, and showcases Carre’s ability to tell intricate and meaningful narratives in the course of a just a few pages. Her tales are also close studies of people brushing up and pushing past one another, struggling to connect. In the course of many of these, Carre investigates how we are lonely and the many futile ways we attempt to connect and hold on. Some are stronger than others, but each one is a weird, lovely gift.
