Graphics Novels... in a Stack

| 4 Comments

A recent stack... a lot here... but for today... Mom's Cancer... This is one SunnyNole suggested I look at after hearing me talk about graphic novels on the podcast. She also referred me to The Squirrel Mother (also in this stack). Both are very powerful. Both have given me a lot to think about. I read Mom's Cancer last week. It's powerful and riveting... and so honest... the raw and unflinching and painful honesty of it all is staggering.

You'll notice in this same stack two that I talked about last week... The Hello, Goodbye Window and Stick Kid.

(I'm not going to talk about the graphic novel stuff I posted last week until next week, I think, by the way. I will say that I deliberately didn't use a ruler... I was going for something more raw and less precise... and I regret that now. I see those images on this page... and I see their crookedness... and I am not charmed... it is not endearing... I want to pull them all down!)

bird by bird! *so* love that book! love, love, love anne lamott. one of the things i count as a huge blessing to living in the bay area is that we've been able to see her speak in public and preach at her church numerous times! love her! (but i'm not a stalker or anything :))

S looks like the "Green Lantern" here. Was he trying to make his own super hero mask? Great photo!

Say, speaking of graphic novels, Maia is REALLY into them. She's reading Tortoro's Friend right now. Can you recommend any to me for her that may be appropriate (10 yrs)?

That's a great stack! I have Squirrel Mother out now too. :)
