This is a story about boyhood, love, religion, sex, identity, and all the confusing bits of growing up. Beautifully rendered and poignant, this one is hard to read in anything more than a single, wonderful sitting. The illustrations are rich and meticulously-detailed while maintaining a flowing simplicity in their storytelling. Every moment has ample room to breathe, and the story culminates in the most human of revelations that leaves the reader knowing, but still wishing to be shown, exactly what comes next.
Loosely based on the author's life, chronicles Craig's journey from childhood to adulthood, exploring the people, experiences, and beliefs that he encountered along the way.
