Invisible Ink: My Mother's Love Affair with a Famous Cartoonist (2015)
English | CBR | 205 pages | 298.52 MB

This is the renowned cartoonist's first long-form graphic work ― a 200-page memoir that poignantly recounts his mother’s secret life, which included an affair with a cartoonist and crime novelist in the 1950s and ’60s. Invisible Ink unfolds like a detective story, alternating between past and present, as Griffith recreates the quotidian habits of suburban Levittown and the professional and cultural life of mid-century Manhattan in the 1950s and ’60s as seen through his mother’s and his own then-teenage eyes. Griffith puts the pieces together and reveals a mother he never knew.

Quite often, important and vivid art is derived from trauma of one kind or another, and the end product is the result of processing exactly what, why and how things happened. The clue here is in the album title, as Norwegian songwriter, soundtrack composer, playwright and short-story writer Rebekka Karijord documents the premature birth (at six months) of her first child. Veering between blissfully upbeat (The Orbit), seriously poppy (Your Name), purposefully experimental (I Will Follow You into the Wild is incomprehensible to all but Karijord, surely), delicately folksy (Six Careful Hands) and almost religious (Mausoleum), Mother Tongue showcases an artist whose creative expressiveness is in keeping with her instinctive role as a sensible communicator.

With dazzling wit and astonishing insight, Bill Bryson – the acclaimed author of The Lost Continent – brilliantly explores the remarkable history, eccentricities, resilience, and sheer fun of the English language. From the first descent of the larynx into the throat (why you can talk but your dog can't) to the fine lost art of swearing, Bryson tells the fascinating, often uproarious story of an inadequate, second-rate tongue of peasants that developed into one of the world's largest growth industries.
