Description

Jacob's sophomore effort (after Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing) is a graphic memoir about race

and family, set against the backdrop of the 2016 election and told through a series of

conversations. At first, the book riffs off questions that Jacob's biracial six-year-old son, Z, asks.

Some queries are simple: 'Who is better, Michael Jackson or Michael Jordan?' Others reflect the

child's internalization of messages from media and require more complex answers: 'Is it bad to be

brown?' Z's inquiries prompt memories that push Jacob to dig into her own childhood and

behaviors through interactions with her immigrant parents and extended family in India. The author

and her husband, Jed, talk about his white male privilege as a Jewish man and his family's

conservative politics. Interactions with Jacob's friends allow her to process out loud some of the

discussions described in previous scenes. The narrative spans generations, drawing parallels

between Jacob and her son but also highlighting the lack of social progress. Aided by the skillful

story structure, Jacob's no-holds-barred vulnerability compels reflection and empathy. The unique

art style combines photographic backgrounds with illustrations of characters framed in white, like

paper cutouts. Characters smartly break the fourth wall, looking directly at readers and inviting

them into the narrative. Scenes of Jacob's past relationships with men and women depict nudity

but nothing explicit. VERDICT A powerful, multilayered exploration of racial identity development

and complicated family dynamics. Timely and necessary.—Alec Chunn, Eugene Public Library,

OR “[I] loved it so so much. So poignant, honest, funny, powerful, and timely, and its themes

build in a way that by the end is truly artistically transcendent.―—Curtis Sittenfeld, New York

Times bestselling author of Prep and Eligible“Among its many virtues, Mira Jacobâ€s

graphic memoir, Good Talk, helps us think through this term [‘person of colorâ€] withÂ

grace and disarming wit. The book lives up to its title, and reading these searching, often

hilarious tête-à -têtes is as effortless as eavesdropping on a crosstown bus. . . . TheÂ

medium is part of the magic. . . . The old comic-book alchemy of words and pictures opens up

new possibilities of feeling. . . . The people are black and white—except, of course, theyâ€re

not.―—Ed Park, The New York Times Book Review“Good Talk addresses head-on the

complexities of being fully American while also being fully Jewish, fully Indian, fully mixed, fullyÂ

whatever in the era of Trump. . . . Good Talk attempts to answer, with humor and heart, some

of the most difficult questions of all.―—Bustle“[A] showstopping memoir about race in

America . . . by turns funny, philosophical, cautious, and heartbreaking . . . Particularly moving

are the chapters in which Jacob explores how even those close to her retain closed-minded and


culturally defined prejudice
