Through Bagge's skilled cartooning, he turns what could be a rote biography into a bold and dazzling graphic novel, creating a story as brilliant as the life itself. Hurston challenged the norms of what was expected of an African American woman in early 20th century society. She arrived in NYC at the height of the Harlem Renaissance, and went on to become a noted folklorist and critically acclaimed novelist, including her most provocative work Their Eyes Were Watching God. With admiration and respect, Bagge reconstructs her vivid life in resounding full-color.
