A Friday Night Book Review

Dotter of Her Father's EyesDotter of Her Father’s Eyes by Mary M. Talbot

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Scholars of James Joyce will find this an interesting read. Artwork which moves the reader definitively between eras moves between styles, too, and does a fine job of setting the tone. In this grimly told tale of two daughters’ stormy relationships with their fathers, characterizations are real and the story paints a picture of two different historical eras from perspectives we don’t expect. I’ve really tried to stretch myself to read in many formats. Experiencing a comic on Adobe Digital Editions is just a tad tough, but this uniquely conceived memoir was worth the effort.
