Abstract:

"What do you do when your outspoken, passionate and quick-witted mother starts fading into a forgetful, fearful woman? In this powerful graphic memoir, Sarah Leavitt reveals how Alzheimer's disease transformed her mother Midge--and her family forever. In spare black-and-white drawings and clear, candid prose, Sarah shares her family's journey through a harrowing range of emotions--shock, denial, hope, anger, frustration--all the while learning to cope, and managing to find moments of happiness. Tangles confronts the complexity of Alzheimer's disease, and gradually opens a knot of moments, memories and dreams to reveal a bond between a mother and a daughter that will never come apart"--Page 4 of cover.
