Everything Is Beautiful, and I'm Not Afraid: A Baopu Collection

by Yao Xiao Author

Yao Xiao masterfully combines graphic novel with memoir, and examine the complexities of a semi-autobiographical character's queer and immigrant identities as they coalesce, diverge, and transform. Inspired by her own experience, Xiao takes on themes of belonging, self-compassion, and gender in what the reader might find both a reflection of her experience and a guide for self-acceptance.
