Graphic Novel - 2012
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Part personal history, part biography, Dotter of Her Father's Eyes contrasts two comingofage narratives: that of Lucia, the daughter of James Joyce, and that of author Mary Talbot, daughter of the eminent Joycean scholar James S. Atherton. Social expectations and gender politics, thwarted ambitions and personal tragedy are played out against two contrasting historical backgrounds, poignantly evoked by the atmospheric visual storytelling of awardwinning graphicnovel pioneer Bryan Talbot. Produced through an intense collaboration seldom seen between writers and artists, Dotter of Her Father's Eyes is smart, funny, and sadan essential addition to the evolving genre of graphic memoir.

* Bryan Talbot is recognized worldwide as one of the true original voices in graphic fiction.

* Bryan Talbot's Grandville Mon Amour was nominated for a 2011 Hugo Award.

Realistic illustrations, reminds me of a memory notebook; type is small and a little difficult to read. Story is okay.

Graphic novel; memoir, contrasting, in almost every way, the life of Joyce's daughter and the life of the daughter of a Joycean scholar. A lot is communicated through the text and graphics in a short 88 pages.

Deserves all the awards and attention it is getting. Combines the author's story with that of Lucia Joyce and from the two creates an involving emotional memoir of sorts.
