How do you preserve yourself?
How do you preserve a feeling?
Maybe this is a recipe on how
to take care of someone else,
but maybe this recipe fails
every time. No matter what,
when you care for a flower,
you’re going to be touching dirt.
Cory Feder’s Flower Dust delivers a strong personal narrative about loss: of a family member and simultaneously, a romantic relationship. Throughout the pages of this comic, she contemplates the difference between taking care of yourself and someone else. Feder processes her aunt’s suicide, drawing parallels between herself and her kin while navigating a language barrier. She discovers how learning a familial language breaks down distance with someone who has passed to better understand the passing. Concurrently, she develops imagery and a language of self preservation in the wake of a significant breakup. Flower Dust tells a rich story that is heartbreaking, bratty, and inspiring.
NOTE: THIS IS A DISCOUNTED PRE-ORDER. The hardcover edition will cost a minimum of $45 once officially released, with a more intricate cover design than shown here.
