"Dirty Laundry" page 1, 2 and 3- page 1 at bottom © Fauzia Husain 2009

On these pages you will be able to access my latest graphic novel entitled, “Dirty Laundry” as I regularly upload the latest installments. Dirty Laundry is a short graphic novel about family secrets and lies and deception and the distance one must travel to decrease there size.

The story has grown out of my previous novel Devil's Piss. I began writing Devil's Piss in 1998 and have been looking for a publisher for the last few years. While writing Devil's Piss I began making illustrations of some scenes just to make them clearer in my head and then, two years ago in Washington DC, in fact in a Starbucks Cafe across the street from the GW bookstore, this story, "Dirty Laundry" sprang into my head over a cup of grande Peppermint white chocolate mocha. I showed it to some of my friends and they loved it and so, here it is.

Dirty Laundry is a working title. By sharing the graphic novel with friends and readers on my website I hope to use feedback to learn more about where the book fails and where it succeeds. And most importantly if you like it.

On my website you can also find a few examples of my academic work at various stages, and I hope to add some of the documentaries I made while working in television. Please leave any comments and suggestions that occur to you. Thank you for your interest.
