November 2020: The Summer of Her Life

“The Summer of Her Life” is the first collaboration between the comic artist Barbara Yelin and the novelist Thomas von Steinaecker. In a poetic, touching and profound way, it touches upon the topics that we seldom dare to touch on: What is it like to spend your twilight years in a home? How do you know whether you’ve made the right choices? And what does it mean, in the end, to be happy?
