Description
A "vibrant, inventive, and vulnerable" ( Bustle ) graphic memoir about American identity, interracial families, and our most difficult conversations, from the acclaimed author of The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing. "By turns hilarious and heart-rending, it's exactly the book America needs at this moment."--Celeste Ng "How brown is too brown?" "Can Indians be racist?" "What does real love between really different people look like?" Like many six-year-olds, Mira Jacob's half-Jewish, half-Indian son, Z, has questions about everything . At first they are innocuous enough, but as tensions from the 2016 election spread from the media into his own family, they become much, much more complicated. Trying to answer him honestly, Mira has to think back to where she's gotten her own answers: her most formative conversations about race, color, sexuality, and, of course, love. Written with humor and vulnerability, this deeply relatable graphic memoir is a love letter to the art of conversation--and to the hope that hovers in our most difficult questions. Praise for Good Talk "Emphasizes the complexities of being part of an interracial family and the struggles of parenting in the present moment." -- Time " Good Talk uses a masterful mix of pictures and words to speak on life's most uncomfortable conversations." -- io9 "Mira Jacob just made me toss everything I thought was possible in a book-as-art-object into the garbage. Her new book changes everything." --Kiese Laymon, New York Times bestselling author of Heavy
