Review

"Nicole Georges spins a riveting family mystery. There's a powerful chemistry going on between her delicate drawings and the probing honesty of her investigations. "Calling Dr. Laura" is disarming and haunting, hip and sweet, all at once." --Alison Bechdel, author of "Fun Home"

"Nicole Georges' "Calling Dr. Laura" is an engrossing, lovable, smart and ultimately poignant trip through a harrowing emotional bottleneck in family life. It's great art, great writing, a great story - I can't wait for what's next from Nicole. What a wonderful book."
-- Rachel Maddow

--Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home

"Engaging...incisive...The author approaches [her story] with the tenacity of a detective. Among other factors--including clever asides and several terrific jokes--a deeply affecting epilogue makes Georges's tale well worth the telling."
--Publishers Weekly

"Anyone who knows Portland, OR. will know Nicole J. Georges, the witty girl with the cat glasses and a devoted following for her talents as an illustrator and zinester . . . Whatever the results, one can bet that this new work from Georges will be a good time."

-"Slate"

"A tragicomic graphic memoir with a stunning indie aesthetic."
-"Bookslut"
