Moms / Yeong-Shin Ma ; translated by Janet Hong.

Ma, Yŏng-sin, 1982- (author,, illustrator.). Hong, Janet, (translator.).


"Lee Soyeon, Myeong-ok, and Yeonsun are all mothers in their mid-fifties. And they've had it. Inspired by his own mom's experiences, cartoonist Yeong-shin Ma crafts a refreshingly honest and unfiltered comic about a group of women who yearn for something more meaningful than what the mediocre men they love or their abusive and power-hungry employers can provide. Despite their less-than-desirable jobs, salaries, husbands, and boyfriends, these moms brazenly bulldoze their way through life, ending up in nightclubs, picket lines, motels and even the occasional back-alley brawl--learning something about the importance of female friendship along the way."--page 4 of cover
