The first time I picked this up I read it in one sitting because I got so sucked in to the indigo hues and memorable characters. This happened again the second time I read it. Maybe I can take a little more time with it this go around, but I'm probably kidding myself--beautiful in every way! -Casey

Solutions and other problems

Allie Brosh

817.6 /Brosh
Memoir, Graphic Novels

Solutions and Other Problems includes humorous stories from Allie Brosh's childhood; the adventures of her very bad animals; merciless dissection of her own character flaws; incisive essays on grief, loneliness, and powerlessness; as well as reflections on the absurdity of modern life.

Frannie's picture

The latest from graphic memoirist Allie Brosh builds on her previous book Hyberbole and a Half in the best way possible. Same great childlike scrawl done in MS Paint, new deeper truths. At times I sat on my couch giggling and kicking my legs from laughter trying not to disturb other people in my home, and at others I was paralyzed with some of the darker turns. I won't divulge details, but urge you to challenge yourself not to laugh and then also look deeper. This was also 1 of 10 2021 Alex Award winners, a prize for books written for adults that have special appeal to young adults. -Frannie

Other people : Days of the Bagnold summer & Driving short distances

Joff Winterhart

GRAPHIC NOVEL Winterhart
Graphic Novels

A librarian mother spends a summer with her metalhead teenage son. A depressive young man becomes an apprentice to a legend-in-his-own mind. These people you never think about will make you reexamine yourself.

Stacey's picture

I came across this lovely book after checking out the Belle & Sebastian soundtrack to the film "Days of the Bagnold Summer." The library doesn't have the movie (and it doesn't look like it's orderable?) but we did have this graphic novel on which it was based. The two stories in this book have just the right kind of slow, melancholy description of everyday life that is perfect for 2020. A mother and son spend several weeks together not doing much... A wayward 28-year-old is given a pity job with a relative that involves driving around depressing scenes all day... But the observations and drawings are very poignant and worth spending some time with. -Stacey
