Long Red Hair is Meags Fitzgerald’s follow up to her acclaimed Photobooth: A Biography. In this graphic memoir, Fitzgerald paints a lively childhood full of sleepovers, amateur fortune-telling and watching scary movies. Yet, Fitzgerald suspects that she is unlike her friends. She intimately takes us from her first kiss to a life sworn off romance.Long Red Hair alluringly delves into the mystique of sorcery and sisterhood.

“Though the colors are muted and the tone is soft, Long Red Hair is the furthest thing from safe or mundane. It’s affecting and brutally honest with its awkwardness… in her comic, Fitzgerald aims for personable and relatable and nails it. ” — Panels

Fitzgerald was named one of CBC’s “Writers to Watch” for 2014.

Praise for Photobooth: A Biography:

“Her passion speaks to powerful universal themes relating to art and memory.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“Fitzgerald pulls off what our favourite teachers seem to do effortlessly: ease us into loving a subject we couldn’t have imagined falling for.” – Montreal Review of Books

“Easily one of the best books in recent memory. Rarely has a creator depicted so masterfully — and, might I add, positively — the mindset and sheer love that goes into collecting. If you give this book a chance, and I hope you will, I imagine you’ll be surprised to find that not only is Photobooth exceptionally readable, but that it’s also one of the most intensely moving books to emerge this year.” — The Comics Alternative
