New Graphic Medicine: May 2020

Here are the graphic medicine books coming out in May 2020. These lists will be about books that I have not yet read. If I have had the opportunity, I will let you know what I thought. If you have read one or more, please leave a comment about what you thought!

This month both books come out on the same day of this post. There were originally more books scheduled to come out this month. They have been pushed back by a month or two. Also I have news. I admire the work that bookshop.org has done supporting indie bookstores. I have become an affiliate of them. This means if you click on these links and purchase the book, I will receive a 10% kickback. Buying the book this way means you will be supporting me as well as indie bookstores. If you have any questions or concerns about this, let me know.  

I Know You Rider by Leslie Stein

This memoir contemplates abortion, human reproduction, birth control, and life. It promises to give a compassionate look into tough situations and questions that are often intentionally ignored. Get a glimpse into the emotions and insights of Leslie Stein.

The Summer of Her Life by Thomas von Steinaecker and Barbara Yelin (art)

This fictional book follows a nostalgic woman struggling with the process of aging and degeneration. Her dislike of being dependent on others conflicts with the reality of her living in an assisted living facility. She reminisces about her youth and choices that she made, contemplating what she might have done differently. This is a story of a person dealing with her mortality.
