In M.S. Harkness' (Tinderella) second graphic novel, she weaves in and out of non-relationships, drug dealing, and sex work with the subtlety of a blunt axe.
She's constantly searching for care and fulfillment, but never quite gets it right.
Desperate Pleasures is a fearless autobiographical account that contextualizes the inter-relational difficulties of a young woman with years of trauma and abuse.
Uncomfortably close-up, filled with dark humor, Desperate Pleasures is an unrelenting read and M.S.
Harkness' best work to date.
