Memoir meets poetry meets graphic novel in By the Forces of Gravity.
Memoir meets poetry meets graphic novel in By the Forces of Gravity ($24, Books by Hippocampus) by Rebecca Fish Ewan, who teaches landscape architecture at The Design School at Arizona State University. Fish Ewan chronicles her unorthodox childhood, which she spent in a kids-only commune in Berkeley, California, through free verse and whimsical cartoons. While other kids are taking geometry and gym classes, Fish Ewan is experimenting with pot, chakras and a handsome boy with “Jesus hair” under the tutelage of her consciousness-expanding best friend, Luna. It’s a groovy and occasionally heavy tale that will captivate former flower children and idealistic millennials alike. Buy the book on Amazon or at books.hippocampusmagazine.com.
