A triumph of graphic memoir, Parenthesis narrates the authors experience with tumor-related epilepsy-losing herself, and finding herself again. Julie is barely out of her teens when a tumor 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 Ãlodie Durand, Parenthesis is a gripping testament of struggle, fragility, acceptance, and transformation which was deservedly awarded the Revelation Prize of the AngoulÃªme International Comics Festival. Pull Quotes: In this graphic memoir, Ãlodie Durand tries to reconnect the threads of her memoryâ¦ the resulting testimony is touching in all its simplicityâ¦ the sober and refined drawings accompany her story with a great deal of accuracy and sensitivityâ¦ the inclusion of sketches made during Durands convalescence adds even more strength and emotion to her black and white artistry. - BD Gest
