Summary

The Baroness of Have-Nothing is a graphic novel that reveals, through my own coming of age story, the transgenerational reverberations of war and displacement. Looking at World War Two history through a personal and familial lens, I examine how cultural, political, and environmental events shaped my relatives’ experiences and actions. Through a feminist reframing of home and family, I explore what it means to belong in a world fraught with human-made and ecological disasters.
