Fabrice Melquiot

Publisher: La Joie de lire

Graphic Novel

Since birth, Polly’s gender has been the subject of incessant questioning. Polly, he? Polly, she? There’s an urgency to label Polly. The doctor presses the parents to make a choice, and it’s decided that Polly shall be a boy. But now, having reached adulthood, Polly has doubts… A boy? Really? Not a girl either… The playwright Fabrice Melquiot presents a compelling story that gradually grows into a struggle against societal norms and the pressure to conform. The troubling beauty of Isabelle Pralong’s illustrations makes Polly a unique graphic novel on a topic that is still rarely addressed in literature.
