Staff Reviews


In this intimate comic journal, Eleanor Davis documents her experience biking from Tucson, Arizona toward her home in Georgia. By eschewing the formality of a traditional travel memoir, Davis's account feels rough but genuine. The sparse uncomplicated illustrations complement the author's quiet introspection--they echo the desolate stretches of highway that fill the space between her thoughts. Its the perfect finish-in-one-sitting-then-cry kind of graphic novel, and it holds a special place on my bookshelf.
