Product description


"Full of energy with dynamic characters who jump off the page... and into bed with each other." Karrie Fransman

"A beautifully individual and dreamlike succession of fun and filth." Woodrow Phoenix

*quotDramatic, sexy, funny and heart-wrenching... I loved it!" --Paul Duffield

"The lush, lively, manga-influenced art is to die for. If this were just a good-looking sex comic, that would be enough. But it delves into deeper issues of faith, family, aging, love, and loyalty with light, sure strokes. As this debut graphic novel shows, UK cartoonist Sarson is an up-and-coming talent to watch." --Publishers Weekly

"A profoundly important and entertaining text... it is an incredible achievement of intelligent social storytelling that demands to be read in one sitting. 9.8/10" --Ink

"One of the pleasures of Jade Sarson's debut graphic novel For the Love of God, Marie! Is that it takes sexuality seriously. That's not to say it misses the pleasure, the humour and, yes, the silliness of sex." --Herald Scotland

"A fun, sexy and moving account of changing times and a life lived defiantly outside of society's demands." --For Books' Sake

"This is a book so bursting with love that it will make your hearts soar! ... Truly great graphic novel... It's a generational saga and its breadth is such that it covers fifty years and encompasses so much that in addition to being a thumping drama of ecstatic highs and gut-wrenching lows, of parental culpability and the determination to do better, of success and failure and reconsideration, it is also a prime slab of British social history." --Page 45
