Stitches: A Memoir Stitches: A Memoir by David Small

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Again with the disclaimer: I don't read a lot of graphic novels, but sometimes an interesting looking one catches my eye. Stitches was getting a lot of praise in library circles, and I was able to grab an advance reader copy, so I gave it a shot.

It basically an unflinching autobiography of David Small and his family. Similar in some ways to Alison Bechdel's Fun Home, but with simpler, more evocative illustration and sparser dialog. No less powerful for that, though. As with most graphic novels, it's a pretty quick read, but I would certainly recommend it.
