Comics veteran slate create this graphic novella of a female wedding photographer who is mourning the loss of her marriage and unpacking her motivations and beliefs about marriage. The storytelling is clear and moves rapidly, with many pages consisting of a single panel. However, perhaps due to format or space constraints, the story moves more rapidly and with less nuance than one might be yearning for. (130) ( )
