Sometimes, the simplest stories are the best. Sarah Lippett’s first graphic novel memorialises the lives of her maternal grandparents: Stanley Burndred, who died before she was born, and whose history she must to a degree dig up; and Joyce, his devoted wife, who became in her long widowhood a deeply beloved grandmother. Schools, jobs, new homes, new babies: it all goes along predictably enough, happy times following sad, and vice versa. Lippett serves up, with barely any effort at all, a little slice of social history, and it’s this that makes her book so rich and touching. Here is a lost England, one that seems to have been gentler and less atomised than our own (98 pages). Stan and Nan (2016) (digital) (Minutemen-dask) ~
