One of our Gosh! Best of 2019 titles! An affecting, honest examination of race and identity in America told largely through conversations between Jacob and her six-year old son and the self-reflection that comes from those discussions. A curious mix of often quite static, repetitive art superimposed onto photographs, the resultant combination with the honest, sometimes uncomfortable and often very funny dialogue creates a unique graphic memoir. Taking her lead from her viral Buzzfeed piece ÃÂ37 Difficult Questions From My Mixed Race SonÃÂ, Jacob has created a book which speaks explicitly to the fractious times we live in, as relevant internationally as it is within the USA. A lovely book that caught us unawares!
