Ms. Magazine recommends Palimpsest

“November 2019 Reads for the Rest of Us” / Ms. Magazine / Karla Strand / November 5, 2019

This powerful graphic novel explores the boom of adoptions of children of South Korean children during the 1970s and 1980s. Based on the author’s own story of being adopted from South Korea at two years old by Swedish parents, this beautifully illustrated debut is bound to push emotional buttons. It challenges existing notions of adoption and identity while stressing the importance of owning your own narrative.
