Item Details

"Two teenaged punk-rock girls hitchhike their way across Italy without a penny in their pockets. Set in 1984, Ulli Lust's Today is the last day of the rest of your life is an intimate, detailed, funny, touching, and dramatic chronicle of several eventful months in the life of the author as she and her new best friend Edi make their way from Vienna, Austria to Sicily.

And there are stints in jail, inclement weather, panhandling, life lessons, new friendships, acts of kindness and acts of betrayal-- and, this being Sicily, some uncomfortably close brushes with the Organization Whose Name You Mustn't Mention" -- p.

I question some of the description here though admittedly I only skimmed the surface of this book/graphic novel which I had borrowed for my friend who was visiting.

It's a highly personal graphic novel with descriptions and depictions of events meant more for an adult audience and maybe more for a particular adult audience.

A second and thorough reading of it only improved its rating in the sense that it is unique if risqué and certainly not necessarily a masterpiece of art or commentary but it may be good for a person to at least examine the book with as open a mind as possible and attempt to relate to the author and the characters as much as they are able to.
