Enemies of the State is a monthly virtual book club discussion on a recently published comic, featuring a rotating cast of comics critics.
Episode #8 of Enemies of the State features commentary on Marion Fayolle’s The Tenderness of Stones, published by New York Review Comics in 2019. As the wrap up to our comics poetry week, we discuss a poetic, almost storybook-like comic about the slow death of Fayolle’s father. In The Tenderness of Stones, Fayolle offers a vision of family, illness, and grief that is simultaneously lyrical and heartrending.
The cast for this episode includes the following critics:
- Alex Hoffman, Publisher of SOLRAD
- Daniel Elkin, Editor in Chief of SOLRAD
- Philippe Leblanc, Critic of The Comics Beat
- and Rob Clough, Contributing Editor of SOLRAD
