A beautifully painted graphic novel and a visual diary, COMA is an astonishing record of one woman’s will to survive a deadly bacterial infection, as her husband and children prepared for the worst. Zara Slattery’s account of life inside a 15-day drug-induced coma, interwoven with pages from her husband’s diary and that of the nurses in the Intensive Care Unit, is above all a love story, and an astonishing graphic novel companion to Michael Rosen’s Many Different Kinds of Love.

‘A hallucinatory masterpiece which tells a tale of tenderness and family love – an incredible work of art, and so important.’ Ian Williams, author of The Bad Doctor
 

‘A wonderful book. Sadness, hope and honesty are your guides.’ Dr Matt Morgan, author of Critical

Jimmy Noone walks from one side of a sprawling city to the other, looking for Betwa, a friend he found and lost on the bustling city streets. Jimmy becomes the catalyst for lost lives colliding, exposing stories of tenderness, devotion, displacement and tragedy, and the subtle threads of commonality which intersect them all, making the invisible, visible again.
