Cover to Cover

 Cover to Cover is a quarterly Politics & Prose Staff Pick, the book we’ve all been reading & recommend, cover to cover. 

Richard McGuire's Here is a wizardly mix of visual experiment, narrative acrobatics, and an exhibition of the power of the comic medium to tell a story spanning hundreds of millions of years­–and yet treats the moment of a lover's caress, a father's comforting words or the simple tragedies of our everyday lives with poetic weight and an elegant storyteller's timing. Witness the paced telling of a joke paired with forest scenes hundreds of years before, see the construction of the home and its destruction, see the scenes of domestic play, of water leaks and power outages, the eras decoration changing page to page, see a hunter's arrow, a bison, a bloodied wolf paired with a 19th century landscape painter picnicking with his loved one, set panel against panel.
