Imagine Wanting Only This by Kristen Radtke (Mini Graphic Novel Review)

Paul picks amazing books and writes thoughtful reviews. I liked this one quite a bit and I am looking forward to reading this book.

Paul's Picks

Radtke’s memoir looks at loss, relationships, and our limited time on earth. The narrative starts with the story of the death of a favorite uncle due to hearth disease, and moves to memories of art school and the beginnings of her relationship with a long-term boyfriend. She travels and sees the world, but focuses her sightseeing on ancient ruins and urban decay. These places symbolize the corruption and dismantling of the future, and juxtaposes with her own possible heart problems.

I felt lost at times in this book. Many tangents are loosely connected to the main themes and are not drawn squarely from her own experiences, so the book pulls away from the memoir genre. The artwork in intriguing, especially with a mixing of mediums of illustration and photography on some of the pages.

It is very hard for me to rate or say whether I would recommend this one…

      1. Graphic Novel wise – Brazen Women, My Favorite thing is monsters, vagrant queen, and two sclaped books. Books – Rijel 12: Rise of New Australia, Cryptofauna, and The City in the Middle of the Night. Plus a smattering of others if I have the time.
