Elizabeth A. Povinelli publishes graphic memoir, 'The Inheritance'

Elizabeth A. Povinelli has published her graphic memoir The Inheritance with Duke University Press. "In her graphic memoir... Povinelli explores the events, traumas, and powers that divide and define our individual and collective pasts and futures. Weaving together stories of her grandparents' flight from their village in the early twentieth century to the fortunes of their knife-grinding business in Buffalo, New York, and her own Catholic childhood in a shrinking Louisiana woodlands of the 1960s and 1970s, Povinelli describes the serial patterns of violence, dislocation, racism and structural inequality that have shaped not only her life but the American story." 

It has been reviewed by Kirkus, which can be found here.
