Narcissa

August 16, 2009

A friend loaned me Lance Tooks Narcissa, which I’ve been meaning to check out for about a year now. I was already intrigued by the art, and didn’t really know jack about the story. (It actually turned out to be a perfect story to follow the APIA Spoken Word Summit…)

Narcissa is a great story following the title character’s self exploration over the course of 3 days, life- the creative process, disability, family, love, gender, race, faith, life and death. Tooks finds a way to get this all in without being preachy or slamming it, but it works within the internal narrative, and finds a really good pacing that surprised me.

Highly recommended!
