Homely lady number three is here to annoy Les today. Looking quite a bit like Holly Winkerbean.
I think we’re missing something from not being able to hear the tone of voice of the lady, because Les in panel three looks terrified. She must sound overwhelmingly anxious. What kind of draconian nightmare does her book club’s by-laws outline? What would be the punishment for bringing disturbing material? Summary execution? Puts a whole new spin on trigger warnings.
Also, books less disturbing than Lisa’s Story? A handful off the top of my head.
The Grapes of Wrath.
Stephen King’s It.
Go Ask Alice.
A Clockwork Orange.
120 Days of Sodom.
