Ginger Smith and Bill Gee
Graphic Novel, Color, 72 pages, 6"x9"
© Frances Barth 2016, released January 10, 2017 on Amazon and Barnes and Nobel.
"In this singular abstracted land, six characters drive forward the story in "Ginger Smith and Billy Gee" by the painter Frances Barth. In the family of a graphic novel, but also like a graphic poem, this is a book in two acts and an Afterword, with interspersed dreams of the main character Ginger.
It turns its focus cinematically on the darkly comic relationship developing between Ginger, a painter, and Billy, an aspiring writer, after Ginger is dumped by Billy's best friend. Four other characters contriibute to the richness of the story. Hiker 1 and Hiker 2 are like figures in a Greek Chorus commenting on the action and entering and leaving the story line, and Male and Female add a Freudian coda to the proceedings. 
This is a winsome and jaunty artist tale, humorous, poetic and symbolic. A full color book with all original drawings and text."
