Alejandro Cartagena's favorite book from 2018

Through text and image, this book takes us on a journey of grief over the loss of a loved one, through the chaotic and rambling feelings mixed into the process. The book asks of us to let go of looking for specific answers about what "it's about" and drags us down a spiral of incertitude that slowly, like a movie, develops into an experience of the issue itself. We are made to feel the denial, the anger, and a possible acceptance of things that are out of our control. I truly enjoyed the flow of the texts and images playing on each other.
