Talking with Lucy Sullivan on “Barking”

Lucy Sullivan put out a wonderful, punchy book called Barking (Unbound, 2020). Semi-autobiographical, but also the result of an intense research, we follow a young woman in the UK has she descends into mental turmoil, is sectioned into a psychiatric hospital and goes through a tumultuous experience. Broader political and social issues are brandished throughout this non-linear, paradoxical narrative, which gives us a first-person account of depression and anxiety. A riveting addition to the graphic medicine subfield of contemporary comics, Lucy Sullivan took some of her precious time to talk to us about the book, its production, its scope and impact.
