Abstract/Description:
This mixed-media memoir uses a variety of forms from short epigrammatic essays to straightforward stories and graphic narratives to explore the author's coming-of-age experiences augmented by chronic illness. Trying to succeed in the film industry, romance, and family situations, the young female narrator navigates the often unexpected or disappointing consequences of having an autonomic nervous system disorder. Relationships between conflicting identities emerge(-)between healthy versus sick self, projected/envisioned versus actual self, and tough versus vulnerable self(-)as the narrator journeys toward a more complete and accepting self-understanding.
