"Like many six-year-olds, Mira Jacob's half-Jewish, half-Indian son, Z, has questions about everything. At first they are innocuous enough, but as tensions from the 2016 election spread from the media into his own family, they become much, much more complicated. Trying to answer him honestly, Mira has to think back to where she's gotten her own answers: her most formative conversations about race, color, sexuality, and, of course, love. Written with humor and vulnerability, this deeply relatable graphic memoir is a love letter to the art of conversation--and to the hope that hovers in our most difficult questions" -- publisher's description.

Excellent submitted by skiger on July 30, 2019, 2:33pm This is a great story/memoir

Even better as an audiobook! submitted by A2AE on June 10, 2023, 6:58am I read this as a graphic novel when it came out and liked it, but recently it was recommended as an audiobook and wow, wow, wow! There’s a huge cast of voice actors who bring each essay to life and make it even better.
