«Uses humour to laugh in the face of well-worn clichés and injustice. Her Instagram account (which has now gathered over 140,000 followers) is chock-full of witty strips. What’s the secret? You’d be hard pressed not to identify with many of them.» Sandra Arbat, La Vanguardia
Star Files brings her most popular strips together for the very first time, in a volume numbering more than 200 pages.
