About the Author

Elisabeth El Refaie is a senior lecturer at Cardiff University in the United Kingdom. Her work has been published in Studies in Comics, Visual Studies, and HUMOR: International Journal of Humor Research, among other periodicals.


"Based on a large and eclectic corpus, Elisabeth El Refaie's study questions autobiographical comics in the light of narrative, literary, media and cultural theories. She accumulates penetrating clarifications on the socio-cultural models involved and on specific questions such as embodiment or the relationship to the mirror, to authenticity, to self-deprecation and even to abjection. The phenomenon of life writing in pictures is now provided with a complete theoretical framework." --Thierry Groensteen, author of La bande dessin e: Une litt rature graphique, La construction de la cage, and The System of Comics
