The Imposter’s Daughter
Gotham teacher Laurie Sandell has just seen the publication of her graphic memoir, The Imposter’s Daughter
. (Let’s point out that a graphic memoir is the memoir version of a graphic novel, not a memoir that contains graphic violence or anything else graphic.) It’s the story of how the writer gradually discovered that her father was a con artist extraordinaire, a man whose entire life was essentially a lie. The story began as a short piece in Esquire
, which Sandell then transformed into a conventional book, after which she realized she could best tell this story as, well . . . as a graphic memoir.
Here's a one-page glimpse:
