An excellent moving, human, sometimes funny story about letting go of your life-long, sometimes life-driving rages and hatreds. Its's also a pleasure to read and look at as it's beautifully drawn with pencil crayons and hand-lettered in plain pencil which somehow makes it all more personal.

Highly recommended! ( )
