In 2008 I began work on a comic based on the experience of bereavement following the death of my first child Billy who died in 1995 following surgery on a number of heart deformities. I began the comic 13 years after the event working from written diaries I had kept at the time and memory. The book was published in 2011 by Myriad Editions. It is available to buy…want a signed copy? Look no further!
This is a unique and moving memoir of what can’t be compared to anything else: the loss of one’s child. Going beyond the usual cliches about grief, it is not only harrowing and disturbing but acutely funny: the reader will laugh and cry, as Streeten teaches us more about loss than any of the standard textbooks on this subject. A brilliant and original book that deserves a wide audience.
