Ordered this book because it was on the GoodReads "best of 2020" nominations list. It is apparently based on an acclaimed short story by Roxane Gay and I kind of want to hunt down that story and read it. I felt the graphic novel was probably missing some of the nuance of her language in that story.

It was an interesting tale of a planet covered in darkness, children held responsible for the sins of their fathers, and class. But, in the end, I felt like the power of the story had probably been in Gay's words and the transition to the graphic novel format robbed it of that power.
