The Art of Being a Grandmother is a 180-page graphic novel written and illustrated by Dana Lam, and edited by Huzir Sulaiman.
“Being a mother is, arguably, a choice.
Being a grandmother is a decision made for you by someone else.”
What does it truly mean to be a grandmother – to nurture a life that is not your own, to witness the growth of another just as you had years before?
The Art of Being a Grandmother: An Incomplete Diary of Becoming is a witty and wise evocation on the pleasures and challenges of this unique stage of life. Combining meditative journal entries about the experiences of raising grandchildren with stunning watercolour, charcoal and ink renderings of scenes of her daily life, Dana Lam’s debut graphic novel will delight readers of all ages with its honesty and wonder.
