Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations

Mira Jacob

Having honest conversations about the complexities of race and love is never easy, but Mira Jacob does it with humor and grace. In the graphic memoir she wrote and illustrated, Jacob reflects on life experiences past and present to answer the difficult questions posed by her young biracial son ahead of the 2016 presidential election. From coming of age as one of the only South Asian students in her New Mexico high school to reckoning with her in-laws' support of Donald Trump, Jacob makes the case that tough talks about the America we live in are not only necessary, but also healing.
