Simone Lia's "Fluffy" is one of the best-loved books on the Cape graphic novel list. As her new book opens we find her in Leicester Square. She's just been dumped by her boyfriend and she's talking to God, telling Him that she's nearly thirty-four and if He wants her to get married He'd better get a move on. Amazingly, God sends a reply, prompting Simone to plan an 'Adventure with God' that starts with a fortnight in a nunnery, then takes her to Australia in search of a hermit. The one she finds proves a disappointment, unlike Brett, the handsome horseman who takes her riding. She thinks he looks just like Crocodile Dundee; he thinks she looks just like Penelope Cruz. Is this the man she's been searching for, or is God making fun of her? Funny, touching and even occasionally profound, "Please God Find Me a Husband!" will be essential reading for spinsters, seekers after enlightenment and lovers of the very best graphic novels.
Simone Lia writes and illustrates comics and children's books. She is the author of Fluffy, published by Jonathan Cape. With Tom Gauld, whom she met at the Royal College of Art in 2000, she publishes her own comics and limited edition products under the name of Cabanon Press. British-born Maltese, she lives in London and visits Malta frequently.
"Hugely entertaining.the comic book equivalent of getting pleasantly squiffy on communion wine (or so I imagine)" -- Teddy Jamieson Herald "Please God, Find Me a Husband! explains what it is like to be an ordinary person of faith struggling with singleness in a way that is both moving and honest, witty and endearing, as well as accessible and appealing to a wide audience of all faiths and none." Third Way "Please God Find Me A Husband! Published by Jonathan Cape is an autobiographical." Irish Post "Please God Find Me a Husband! Explains what it is like to be an ordinary person of faith struggling with singleness in a way that is both moving and honest, witty and endearing, as well as accessible and appealing to a wide audience of all faiths and none" -- Sarah Dean Third Way
