Ginger Smith and Billy Gee: An Optimistic and Utopian Tale

fb_cover_sfw

Now Released for Sale at Amazon and Barnes and Noble

In this singular abstracted land, six characters drive forward the story in “Ginger Smith and Billy Gee” by the painter Frances Barth. In the family of a graphic novel, but also like a graphic poem, this is a book in two acts and an Afterword, with interspersed dreams of the main character Ginger. It turns its focus cinematically on the darkly comic relationship developing between Ginger, a painter, and Billy, an aspiring writer, after Ginger is dumped by Billy’s best friend.

Four other characters contriibute to the richness of the story. Hiker 1 and Hiker 2 are like figures in a Greek Chorus commenting on the action and entering and leaving the story line, and Male and Female add a Freudian coda to the proceedings. This is a winsome and jaunty artist tale, humorous, poetic and symbolic.

A full color book with all original drawings and text.
72 pages.
