Becoming Unbecoming

by Una
£14.99   paperback  Myriad Editions (2015)

Becoming Unbecoming by Una A devastating personal account of gender violence told in graphic-novel form, set against the backdrop of the 1970s Yorkshire Ripper man-hunt.
 
Its 1977 and Una is twelve. A serial murderer is at large in West Yorkshire and the police are struggling to solve the case despite spending more than two million man-hours hunting the killer and interviewing the man himself no less than nine times.
 
As this national news story unfolds around her, Una finds herself on the receiving end of a series of violent acts for which she feels she is to blame.
 
Through image and text Becoming Unbecoming explores what it means to grow up in a culture where male violence goes unpunished and unquestioned. With the benefit of hindsight Una explores her experience, wonders if anything has really changed and challenges a global culture that demands that the victims of violence pay its cost.
