Please join us at Sweat Records this Friday for the release of SPIT AND PASSION, Miami-born Cristy C. Road‘s graphic memoir. Cristy will be reading excerpts from the novel, while displaying a slideshow of the corresponding art, and answering all of your questions on anything ranging from comics to the government to love advice! Details on the book from Feminist Press:

“At its core, SPIT AND PASSION is about the transformative moment when music crashes into a stifling adolescent bedroom and saves you. Suddenly, you belong. At twelve years old, Cristy C. Road is struggling to balance tradition in a Cuban Catholic family with her newfound queer identity, and begins a chronic obsession with the punk band Green Day. In this stunning graphic biography, Road renders the clash between her rich inner world of fantasy and the numbing suburban conformity she is surrounded by. She finds solace in the closet—where she lets her deep excitement about punk rock foment, and finds in that angst and euphoria a path to self-acceptance.

Cristy C. Road is a Cuban American artist and writer from Miami; she currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. She has reached cult status for work that captures the beauty of the imperfect. Her career began with Greenzine, a punk rock zine, which she made for ten years. She has since published Indestructible, an illustrated novel about high school; Distance Makes the Heart Grow Sick, a postcard book; and Bad Habits, a love story about self-destruction and healing. She has also illustrated countless record album covers, book covers, political organizations propaganda, and magazine articles.”
