BLURB: 

 

Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.

REVIEW: 

 

This beautiful comic book style graphic novel is an autobiographical work of the author’s formative years. The story itself is beautiful and the images tell as much of the story as the words do. A mixture of a coming-of-age story with the search for religion and love that makes for a tender and touching story.

This story elicited a multitude of emotions as it moved through the authors life. With the many elements of growing upend searching for meaning in life any reader can find something to relate to in this graphic novel. The illustrations themselves are as effective as the words in this book.

A truly moving coming of age story that left me truly intrigued with this man’s story and how he saw the world. There is something special about reading an autobiography and the authors own perception and experiences. Blanket’s amplifies this with its beautiful graphics.
