Burrow is a fictional poetic comic about identity transformation in the feral sleepless early months of new motherhood, partly inspired by the discovery that trees sleep more than the author did when she was caring for her newborn.

Burrow was originally self-published with support from the Pulitzer Arts Foundation.
