Limited while supplies last!
To celebrate the release of pop-punk band Green Day’s newest album, Revolution Radio, each purchase of Cristy C. Road's Spit and Passion will also include a limited time bonus package of two prints, sticker, and button, all featuring artwork by the artist and author. While supplies last, readers will also receive a signed copy of the book.
Spit and Passion is a coming-of-age graphic memoir about that transformative moment when music crashes into a stifling adolescent bedroom and saves you—and suddenly, you belong. At twelve years old, Cristy C. Road is trying to balance the values of a Cuban Catholic family with her newfound queer identity, and begins a chronic obsession with Green Day.
Called "brilliant as it is brave" by Junot Díaz, and "spot-on, weird, and familiar" by Alison Bechdel, Cristy C. Road stunningly renders the clash between her rich inner world of fantasy and the numbing suburban conformity that surrounds her. She finds solace in the closet—where she lets her deep excitement about punk rock foment and, in that angst and euphoria, finds a path to self-acceptance.
