Small, an award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, won legions of new fans with his stunning graphic memoir, Stitches. This eagerly-awaited graphic novel is a book of few words, powerful emotions, and spliced images that speak volumes. The narrative is set in the 1950s and follows thirteen-year-old Russell Pruitt as he struggles to survive a harrowing adolescence. Abandoned by his mother, he sets out on his own to find his father, who is somewhere in California. He ends up in Marshfield, a derelict town menaced by a sadistic animal killer where he fends off his alcoholic father at home and dodges a gang of bullies at school. By the time he’s finally rescued by a Chinese immigrant couple, Russel can no longer tell who he can trust.
