Thank you to the colleague who recommended this graphic novel and said it was a very fast read. I’d seen it on multiple best of 2019 lists, and it fully deserves those spots. Mira Jacob writes of being an American of South Indian descent, pitied by her relatives in India for her dark skin, living in New York City with her Jewish husband, and worried about Trump’s America. The book consists largely of conversations with young her son, trying to answer his innocent questions about race. You’ll feel like she is a close friend by the end.
