(W/A/CA) Sarah Leavitt
What do you do when your outspoken, passionate, and quick-witted mother starts fading into a forgetful, fearful woman?
In this powerful memoir, Sarah Leavitt reveals how Alzheimer disease transformed her mother, Midge, and her family forever.
In spare black-and-white drawings and clear, candid prose, Sarah shares her family journey through a harrowing range of emotion – shock, denial, hope, anger, frustration – all the while learning to cope, and managing to find moments of happiness.
Tangles confronts the complexity of dementia and ultimately releases a knot of memories and dreams to reveal a bond between a mother and a daughter that will never come apart.
