I was very hopeful about this book as I picked it up at a local Half Price Books I enjoy looking for graphic novels that embark on a journey of humanity This one, however, tried too hard Honestly, I wanted to like it I wanted it to be powerful and changing, and I think the authors intended it to as well, but it is simply so poorly executed that readers stomp through without feeling moved There is no a speck of natural empathy the book creates for readers that the Egyptian revolution wouldn t already spark It also is disguised as a coming of age story in the realm of cancer, and the protagonist must deal with mortality and death in by cancer in a metaphorical sense as the revolution Unfortunately, the metaphor is overdone, weak, and feels very fake Where so many graphic artists speak from their experiences this is just a poorly drawn story It doesn t w The jacket flap touts this as the first book in a new series, that realizes ethnographic research in graphic novel form Sounds potentially boring, I know, but it s actually pretty cool Anna and Layla strike up an unlikely friendship as young girls in Cairo When Anna s mother dies of cancer, she is forced to return to the US to live, though the two friends promise to stay in touch In later years, each faces a medical crisis Anna, the choice of preventive surgery to decrease her chances of sharing her mother s fate and Layla, her father s kidney failure and refusal to consider a transplant and their friendship is put to the test due to stark differences in their perspective And then, in 2011, revolutionary unrest in Egypt changes their lives forever The best approach, I think, with this graphic novel, is to ignore all the academic foofaraw Don t read the jacket flaps Don t read the text about the ethnoGRAPHIC imprint Don t read the Afterword and the Appendices Just read the story Try not to go into it with a bunch of fears and expectations You ll appreciate the story Trust me Yeah, the art is crude but serviceable But it s still a good story All the academic stuff is best appreciated afterward There is a lot of it We re talking Criterion Collection levels of extras here My favorite bits are probably the discussion of the storytelling, which point out some of the subtler aspects of the artwork and the way in whi Using a graphic medium to study ethnography a pretty brilliant idea Lissa is the first of a series called ethnoGRAPHIC, published by the University of Toronto.The story follows two girls throughout their teenage years and early adulthood one an Egyptian Muslim daughter of a chaffeur, the other an American expat between their intersecting lives in Cairo, Egypt, and Boston, USA Written with the specific purpose of ethnographic and anthropological education, each of the young women face medical challenges and decisions in their families The reader gets an overview of the culture and politics of organ transplantation in Egypt, treatment and support systems for previvors and preventative cancer screening in the US, the cultural questions of how a person reacts when they receive medical news, and the belief system around medical interventions to prese As a reader, this is a moving and beautifully constructed comic bridging two cultures, medical traumas, and revolution itself As a scholar teacher, this is exactly the sort of work I believe we need in graphic medicine or other graphic disciplines The story can be approached by anyone, but it also can be pulled apart and discussed in depth from any number of points of entry In p
