Stitches; David Small

StitchesStitches by David SmallMy rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having heard David Small speak at this year's RUSA Literary Tastes breakfast gave me a greater appreciation for his graphic novel of an autobiography. His humor (even in the fact of technical difficulty!) made me want to read what for me is a difficult genre to appreciate fully (yet, unlike most manga, this was easy for me to follow).

David's tale of living in a very difficult, one might say strange, household, complete with visits to his clinically insane grandmother is priceless. The addition of his "growth" and learning that it was, in fact, cancer added a poignant twist that kept this from being an everystory.
