Winner of the 2019 Believer Book Award for Fiction : Ebony Flowers

Announcing the winners of the 2019
Believer Book Awards

Winner: Hot Comb
by Ebony Flowers
Drawn & Quarterly

It feels rare to encounter a book as full of life as Ebony Flowers's debut collection of short graphic fictions, Hot Comb. The style in which each story is rendered changes according to the narrative's needs, but Flowers's impressionistic panels are a constant. They vibrate with an energy that suggests they've been invested with the world she portrays. In Hot Comb, Flowers has produced something authentically new and exciting.
