it was amazing
Read in October, 2011

This is a wonderful graphic novel told in three parts. Each of the three graphic novels that comprises it tells a complete story, but the payoff is far richer when you read all three. With every part, you understand more about the characters and their relationships. It's almost like a Faulkner novel, and by saying that, I don't mean to scare anyone off. It's just that the shifting of time frame and points of view, the family tree aspect, and the sense of place (the action all takes place in Essex County, Ontario) all recall Faulkner.
