Staff Reviews

While tragic in its story, David Small's Stitches is an enriching and redemptive tale of one boy's struggles through the chaos of youth. It is a profound, intense memoir of his childhood struggles with cancer and his dysfunctional family. Losing his voice to throat surgery, Small has his neck, as well as his life, sewn back together, leaving scars that are much worse than just the physical. In Stitches, Small has combined a limited word use with a simple drawing style to reinforce the sparse, constrictive life that he lived.
