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 Read more “[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€] with grace and disarming wit. The book lives up to its title, and reading theseÂ

searching, often hilarious tête-à -têtes is as effortless as eavesdropping on a crosstown bus.

. . . The 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, fully 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 memoirÂ

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 prejudices. . . . The memoir works well visually, with striking


pen-and-ink drawings . . . collaged onto vibrant found photographs and illustrated backgrounds. . .

. Told with immense bravery and candor, this book will make readers hunger for more of

Jacobâ€s wisdom and light.―—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)“Breezy but poignant .

. . [Mira Jacob] employs pages of narrative prose sparingly but hauntingly. . . . The ‘talksâ€

Jacob relates are painful, often hilarious, and sometimes absurd, but her memoir makes a fierce

case for continuing to have them.―—Publishers Weekly (starred review)“A beautiful and

eye-opening account of what it means to mother a brown boy and what it means to live in this

country post–9/11, as a person of color, as a woman, as an artist . . . In Jacobâ€s brilliant

hands, we are gifted with a narrative that is sometimes hysterically funny, always honest, and

ultimately healing.―—Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award–winning author ofÂ

Another Brooklyn “Good Talk begins with a childâ€s innocent questions about race and

evolves into an honest, direct, and heartbreakingly funny journey. As a brown-skinned woman

married to a Jewish man and the mother of a biracial child, I experienced this book on multiple

levels: It broke my heart and made me laugh a helluva lot, but, in the end, it also forced me to

ponder whether I have successfully provided the answers necessary to arm my own children

against racism in America.―—Lynn Nottage, Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright of Sweat
