About this product
- DescriptionThe Beginning of the American Fall is an account of the first few months of the Occupy Movement, in which McMillan combines interviews, dialogue, description, insightful reflections and her charming drawings to form a firsthand account of the movement that is shaking America's social, political and ecomic core. She reveals the crusade's initial struggles, during a time when it was fragile and contradictory, and where people's expectations and goals were muddled and seemingly unattainable. In a unique comics form, this is an utterly distinctive record of the Occupy Movement.
