Catapult celebrates Amy Kurzweil's debut graphic novel "Flying Couch" with a reading at Books Inc. Palo Alto.
In "Flying Couch," Amy creates a portrait not only of what it means to be part of a family, but also of how each generation bears the imprint of the past. With her playful, idiosyncratic sensibility, Amy traces the way our memories and our families shape who we become. The result is this bold illustrated memoir, both an original coming-of-age story and an important entry into the literature of the Holocaust.
Part of the story takes place at Stanford where Amy attended undergrad!
In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews called it "a debut that enriches and extends the potential of graphic narrative."
