Notables 2010: Jess Fink’s We Can Fix It

Jess Fink We Can Fix It:  A Time Travel Memoir, 2009.

Full disclosure: Jess Fink is a graduate of SVA, a former student of friends and colleagues Tom Hart and Keith Mayerson. However, I can honestly say I didn’t know that when I read this book, and found it quite charming. “Jess” travels in a time machine to visit younger versions of herself and try to save herself from embarrassing and scary situations, but her younger self won’t pay attention. Drawn in a an improvisational-seeming pencil style.

Age: teen. It’s risqué in that it references sex and masturbation, but the subject matter is so very perfect for those awkward years when every move seems to mean more embarrassment and self-doubt.
