Description

A triumph of graphic memoir, Parenthesis narrates the author’s experience with tumour-related epilepsy-losing herself, and finding herself again. Julie is barely out of her teens when a tumour begins pressing on her brain, ushering in a new world of seizures, memory gaps, and loss of self.

Suddenly, the sentence of her normal life has been interrupted by the opening of a parenthesis that may never close. Based on the real experiences of cartoonist lodie Durand, Parenthesis is a gripping testament of struggle, fragility, acceptance, and transformation which was deservedly awarded the Revelation Prize of the Angoulme International Comics Festival.

Pull Quotes: ‘In this graphic memoir, lodie Durand tries to reconnect the threads of her memory the resulting testimony is touching in all its simplicity the sober and refined drawings accompany her story with a great deal of accuracy and sensitivity the inclusion of sketches made during Durand’s convalescence adds even more strength and emotion to her black and white artistry.’ - BD Gest’
