Product Details

Praise

“Healy’s memoir is both a thoughtful meditation on being an outsider looking in, and a practical read for people interested in the logistics of conquering a long-distance trail.”
—Ingrid Bohnenkamp, Library Journal

“This masterful and moving graphic memoir establishes Luke Healy as one of the finest cartoonists working today… Americana is a triumph.”
—James Sturm, author of Off Season
 
Praise for Luke Healy’s previous book, How To Survive In The North:
“These beautifully pensive and chilly vignettes interweave history and the present, exploring the circumstances of bad decisions and the resulting consequences we face. Healy’s quiet storytelling and expressive yet simple lines pull you in to the lives and experiences of these characters, both factual and fictional.”
—Lucy Knisley, bestselling author of Relish: My Life in the Kitchen
 
“Healy is a master of stitching together narrative threads like 
a double helix of twinned realities.”
The Washington Post

“A thought-provoking graphic novel about the exploration of the Arctic […] Healy’s narrative gains power from the interconnecting stories and a carefully chosen thematic color palette, but above all it is powered by his brilliant handling of the wordless panels where so much of the story is told.”
Publisher’s Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
