“Durand’s smoky pencil illustrations are terrifyingly good at evoking the interior experiences of this process, especially when she uses surreal, body-centric imagery… Unforgettable.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This book bears the mark of a great cartoonist… Parenthesis is a subtly constructed memoir that works from start to finish. We are left haunted by this debut.” — L’Express

“A playful, effective, and powerfully moving autobiographical testimony.” — Planète BD

“With a sober and expressive line, Durand has drawn a book submerged with emotion… overwhelming, but with accuracy and sensitivity.” — BoDoï

“The poignant testimony of a young woman struck down by a brain tumor… By retracing her fall into the abyss, she allows us to benefit from this beautiful fight for life.” — ActuaBD

“Durand tries to reconnect the threads of her memory… the resulting testimony is touching in all its simplicity… the inclusion of sketches made during Durand’s convalescence adds even more strength and emotion to her black and white artistry.” — BD Gest
