Fran: Continuing and Preceding Congress of the Animals by Jim Woodring
Hardcover – Fantagraphics Books – Nov 2013 – Unpaged
Who is Fran?
There is only one answer to that question, and you’ll find them both in this volume!
You can read Fran before you read Congress of the Animals and it will blend gracefully into it and explain a lot of what you have previously read; or you can read Fran after you read Congress of the Animals as a continuation of that story, after which you may wish to read Congress of the Animals again. Of course you can read Fran without reading Congress of the Animals at all. But read Fran you must, because between these pages is a situation that every human heart must contemplate to be fully prepared for any contingency.
So do yourself a favor and take the plunge. You can’t stay cooped up on the outside of this book forever!
