Fiction Tuesday-DISPLACEMENT

(The book’s watercolors evoke the ocean that surrounds them.) In a book that is part graphic memoir, part travelogue, and part family history, Knisley not only tries to connect with her grandparents, but to reconcile their younger and older selves. She is aided in her quest by her grandfather’s WWII memoir, which is excerpted. Readers will identify with Knisley’s frustration, her fears, her compassion, and her attempts to come to terms with mortality, as she copes with the stress of travel complicated by her grandparents’ frailty.

Here comes another graphic novel by Lucy Knisley.

This graphic novel is about travels with her grandparents. On a cruise. Its autobiographical and enjoyable. You just might read it twice or so.

I have to admit, this sounds incredibly intriguing.
