Infinite Wait and Other Stories
by Julia Wertz
Published by Koyama Press
228p, b&w, softcover, 6.5"x9"
Wertz's comics took a cohesive and dramatic shift in her last book Drinking at the Movies. Infinite Wait continues the trajectory into personal and often painful territories grounding difficult subjects with astute and acerbic wit. The book is in three distinct sections: first, a jaunty journey through Wertz's entire work resumé, second, the anchor story of the volume a chronicle of her life during a long diagnosis and adjustment to systemic lupus, and rounding out with a short love letter to libraries and reading. Nice. -EF
