The Refrigerator Monologues Cover Image
By Catherynne M. Valente, Annie Wu (Illustrator)
ISBN: 9781481459341
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Saga Press - June 6th, 2017

“Let’s have terrible things happen to a significant woman in the protagonist’s life in order to provide the protagonist with motivation” is neither a new trope, nor one exclusive to comics storytelling, but the medium is rife with examples thereof, six of which are brilliantly tweaked just enough to avoid existing in any particular comic universes in this powerful collection. The characters in Valente’s stories are angry, sad, and fully aware of the way in which they previously existed less as characters in their own right, than as plot devices – just one of the topics they discuss in the strange limboland they exist in, where they periodically gather as the Hell Hath Club in the Lethe Café to recount their tales.  – Maryelizabeth
