Things to do in a Retirement Home Trailer Park
All about this product:
Nye’s father has been certified for hospice care, but Nye would rather move into his father’s trailer and take care of him himself. In this masterful, graphic portrayal of a father and son dealing with home care, Wright’s mastery allows the reader to witness the deepest emotions on many levels, where what is said is only half the story as a young man comes to terms with his dying father in the final months of his life.
The graphic vocabulary, in a palette of blue, red and black, is carefully planned and flights of visual fancy express genuine emotion rooted in reality. In the book the protagonist is a minotaur and his father is a rhinoceros, in the superbly-drawn world of a trailer park where social workers are sea turtles and mobile homes move atop elephants. This is a universal tale of love and loss told in a wholly original way.
