Very good memoir about the author's childhood. I don't read a lot of graphic novels. At first I was skimming the illustrations to get to the words but then I realized the illustrations conveyed as much, perhaps more, than the words.

Small is a gifted illustrator. His choice of medium perfectly captured the voiceless element of his story.

Anyone else read it?
