Penguin Random House India recently announced the acquisition of popular and much-loved illustrator Alicia Souza's first book. Titled 'Dearest George', Alicia dedicates the book to her best friend and husband George and shares precious notes from her love story with the readers. The book will be released in January 2020, in time for Valentine's Day.
In this very special debut, Alicia brings her light-hearted comic style from webpages to book pages in a compilation of comic strips, some old and some new. Fans of her work and readers are in for a treat with Alicia packing the book with not only her stories but also some wonderful surprise such as tear out post cards and stickers. In her instantly recognizable style, Alicia will tell the story of her love life in a love letter that will successfully capture everyday kind of love, making this book a perfect I-love-you, happy-birthday, you-are-a-cutie, I-am-having-a-bad-day-and-I-need-a-hug, happy-valentines-day gift for yourself or anyone you love.
Commenting on her upcoming book, Alicia Souza says, ''There's a boy named George who I like. A lot. Maybe a bit too much. I'm avenging revenge for him not being the holding-hands-in-public type and felt I needed to up my 'how do I get George more awkward' game. This love-note book is the result. I like you, George. I'm pleased this is a book published by amazing Penguin. Nothing like a physical print copy in, hopefully, rounds of editions by a top-notch publisher with great distribution to make sure that George is forever cringing. Ahh! Sweet sound of George cringing.''
