This graphic memoir tells the story of the author, Jeff, a young professional in his forties whose life is thrown into chaos and uncertainty after he experiences a series of heart attacks. Once non-stop and deeply ambitious, Jeff was forced to slow down and take stock of how his lifestyle choices led him to experience this medical trauma. Accompanied by beautiful artwork in the author’s signature style, the book is a collection of short musings and vignettes that each offer insight into experiences in hospital and on the long road to recovery. The author shares the journey towards renewal and a deeper self-knowledge, inspiring others who may be on a similar journey to do the same.
