Synopsis

“I know important things, things that could change people’s lives. All of them are in my head. If I told them, there would be a paradigm change, a before and after in our lives. Suffering would end and a new world order would arise based on inner peace. The thing is, I don’t remember right now what those things were.”

Luci Gutiérrez is one of the most internationally renowned illustrators. She is author of the bestseller English is Not Easy and publishes regularly in The New Yorker. Self-Defense Manual is her most personal work. Drawing on her deepest fears with black humor and a daring and sophisticated gaze, she points out all the meanness in this horrible world.
