Published by AdHouse Books

The long-anticipated first collection from Pope Hats.

After insomniac law clerk Frances Scarland is recruited by her firm’s most notorious senior partner, she seems poised for serious advancement—whether she wants it or not. But when her impulsive best friend Vickie decides to move to the opposite coast for an acting role, Frances’ confusing existence starts to implode…

An intimate study of work chaos and close friendships over time.

Hartley Lin has created comics under the pen name Ethan Rilly (an anagram of his real name) for roughly 10 years, winning several awards along the way. With his first major collection, Young Frances, he officially retires the alias.

His acclaimed series Pope Hats has received a Doug Wright Award, Ignatz Award and Joe Shuster Award, as well as nominations for the Eisner Award.
