Becoming Unbecoming

by Una Author

A profoundly moving and powerful graphic novel of female empowerment. In 1977, 12-year-old Una town in northern England is captivated by the Yorkshire Ripper, a serial killer of prostitutes. As moral decay and panic swell the city, Becoming Unbecoming uses Una's experiences of sexual violence as a springboard to explore sexual attacks against women and a society complicit in these acts. Employing a variety of illustrative styles, with color used minimally for impact, Becoming Unbecoming is a powerful indictment of misogyny and a culture steeped in it.
