From the Back Cover:
Meditative, humorous, and raw, And Yet We Rise, dares to dive into the hidden world of care-giving a disabled loved one. This graphic novel explores the beauty and heartbreak with frankness and humanity.
If you live long enough, a loved one– or even you– will become disabled, but honest information is rare. This book tackles the hard questions:
How do you care for someone who won’t get better?
How do you deal with feeling grief and relief at the same time?
Love it or hate it, you will have an opinion about this ground-breaking graphic novel.
This book calls to anyone who knows desperation, loneliness, or sorrow. It packs a powerful message: Not everything must be fixed… and, in fact, even significant disability and death are normal and natural– not to feared or fought, but embraced as integral parts of the human experience.
The drawings are quietly stunning. They guide you through a disorienting landscape of intense complexity with their deceptively simple lines. You feel like you are getting a glimpse, not only into the artist’s private sketch book, but his life.
A chapter from this book won the 2016 Pen 2 Paper Contest for Comics.
