  • The first volume of You’ll Never Know showed Carol’s initial, sometimes difficult, attempts at grappling with her father Chuck’s traumatic World War II experiences by bringing them to light.

    As Book 2 begins, she is startled to discover that Chuck’s decision to suddenly, after 60 years, open up to her on the subject has motivations that go far beyond his desire to reveal his past - putting even more pressure on an already explosive relationship. In any event, Carol finally begins to delve into, and re-tell, Chuck’s horrific wartime experiences in Italy (which are worse than even she had imagined). But back in the present, the cycle of family dysfunction continues as Carol’s own daughter runs into her own trouble, leading Carol into further exploration of her family’s buried traumas and sorrows - with an expanded reprinting of the out-of-print ‘The Hannah Story,’ Tyler’s superb chronicle of the short life and accidental death of her older sister, a heart-rending story (named one of the ‘100 Best Comics of the 20th Century’ in a Comics Journal survey) that in turn sheds light on her parents’ subsequent lives and patterns of behavior. Everything is connected, and the past is never just the past…
