From the publisher

Nominated for 2023 Eisner Awards in the Best Graphic Memoir and Best Writer/Artist categories Nominated for the 2023 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award Included in Forbes' "The Best Graphic Novels of 2022" list "Thorogood elevates the dark material with her expressive use of the comics medium and the urgency of her voice. One to watch for the 2020s." -Forbes "This has the force of a fist punching through the page." -Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "Thorogood taps into sensation and the way that it is experienced in a way that is unlike anything I've seen before. It's astonishing." - AIPT (review link) Cartoonist Zoe Thorogood records six months of her own life as it falls apart in a desperate attempt to put it back together again in the only way she knows how. IT'S LONELY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH is an intimate and metanarrative look into the life of a selfish artist who must create for her own survival. A poignant and original depiction of a young woman's struggle with mental health-through the ups and downs of anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome-as she forges a promising career in sequential art and finds herself along the way.
