Chasing Echoes

Chasing Echoes

A heartfelt tale about dysfunctional family dynamics, the ghosts of war and what brings us back together.

Malka, the black sheep of her family, learns that her relatives are making a decades-in-the-planning pilgrimage to their grandfather’s pre-Holocaust home in Poland...and she wasn’t invited. After guilt-tripping herself a ticket as the self-appointed “Keeper of the Family Archives,” it becomes clear that everyone’s brought more baggage than just their suitcases.

    This was my first foray into graphic novels. Once I got a few pages in I really liked it. The story seemed like it would fit almost any typical family, religion aside. Smile to your face and talk abou...

    I'd give it probably a 3.75. As a family historian, I loved the premise, but the execution was a bit wanting. I didn't love how much of a mess he made the main character. It's one thing to make her fa...

    It doesn't take long for you to get a feel for how the Bloom family assembles into their obviously well-worn tracks of their own family drama. Their disfunction sets up a good back drop for the heavy ...
