Between Valentine's Day and lots of cold nights to stay in and be cozy... February really is the month of love. Doomboy is a weird little love story my husband and I found at a used book store and bought it because we liked the art - the initial plan was to cut pages out and frame them. Luckily we decided to read it first!
If you like music, weird little graphic novels, or really cool art work, give this one a try.

I was gifted this book years ago from someone I barely knew, and little did I know it would become one of my favorite books (how could you have just one)! I've read and reread and gifted and lent this book so many times since. It's the story of the daughter of a wealthy family and a middle aged caretaker who reside in the same apartment building and the ways their lives are interwoven. Told in each voice, this book gives you a glimpse into the inner lives and intimate thoughts of these two women, each strong in their own way - each searching for something bigger than themselves.
