Reviews

"Shit Is Real is set in a near future where holograms are replacing workers, but there's no glossy sheen... For all its darkness, there's real energy and ingenuity: this is a wise and funny journey through loneliness and confusion."--The Guardian"[A] dreamlike exploration of depression and solitude... Selma's journey is an affecting one. Her trek to self-actualization is twisting and forlorn--but a road worth traveling."--Publishers Weekly

"Shit is Real takes place in a slightly futuristic world and features a young woman reeling in the aftermath of a sudden breakup and move. The protagonist's anxiety plays out in a narrative world of ultramodern technology and lizard aliens, and throughout the story, Franz's artwork uncannily conjures both a sense of familiarity and displacement."--LA Review of Books

"Sexual frustration and crippling loneliness abound, yet the book is curiously buoyant and consistently engaging."--Vulture"[Aisha Franz] imbues the story with ingenuity thanks to a surreal perspective that blurs the line between reality and dreaming."--The AV Club
