This intense graphic novel reads like an indie movie. The focus of the novel is on the dialogue rather than the art, which is unlike any graphic novel I have read before. Drnaso explores grief as well as the toxicity of the internet and fear-mongering. I felt so deeply for each of the characters. This is not an easy read but it is definitely worth it. The deep, heart-breaking story is in contract with simple line drawings. It is clear why this book was the first graphic novel long-listed for the Man Booker Prize. Drnaso has perfectly captured how scary and depressing the world can be while still showing the importance of friendships and interpersonal human interactions.
