Eyes Too Dry : A Graphic Memoir About Heavy Feelings - by Alice Chipkin & Jessica Tavassoli (Paperback)
About this item
Meet Tava, a 24-year-old medical student in a deep depression. Alice, her friend and housemate, is trying to figure out how to support her. Time unravels, leaving both women bewildered at the emotional landscapes that have opened before them. Eyes Too Dry started out as a series of private conversations between the authors by way of a comic-in-correspondence. Their decision to make this work public was fueled by their struggle to find stories and artwork that spoke to their experiences of encountering depression, suicidal ideation, and emotional weight. In a world that tells us to "keep calm and carry on," they are offering a narrative that is vulnerable, honest, and uncertain. They hope to add new ways to talk about, visualize and relate to these complex emotions.
