An unflinching and minutely observed autobiographical masterpiece.
How I Tried to Be a Good Person is a story of sexual obsession, gender conflict, and self-liberation, told with an honesty few cartoonists are capable of. This powerfully vulnerable graphic memoir picks up directly where its predecessor (Today Is The Last Day Of The Rest Of Your Life) left off, following Lust's life as a young, enthusiastic anarchist making her way in 1990s Vienna. In the hopes of fulfilling all of her romantic needs, Lust heedlessly enters into a tumultuous love triangle with two men: the “perfect companion” Georg, an actor twenty years her elder, and the “perfect lover” Kimata, a Nigerian man-about-town. As her relationships with the two men evolve, jealousy increasingly mounts and the ensuing violent emotions soon leave her worried for her life.
