Giant Days, Volume 11: 11/14/19
Giant Days, Volume 11 by John Allison covers the first half of the last year at university. The first section is about Halloween. The second is about Christmas. The third is a trip to Australia.
Halloween is one last hurrah for former roommates Esther, Daisy, and Susan. It's a chance for Daisy to confront her ex, who is now dating a man. It's time for Esther come to terms with her feelings for Ed.
Christmas is Daisy vs. the cult, even after McGraw barely escapes the ring leader. What's one to do with a charismatic neighbor who keeps roping you into one shading adventure after another? The culmination is the literal worst Christmas village ever, complete with a melted Santa Claus.
Although the first two parts are hilarious, my favorite part is where Ed and his physical therapy girlfriend travel home to Australia. Ed is completely out of his comfort zone but with the help of a feisty Nan, manages to save the day.
The twelfth volume will be released February 11, 2020.
