520    "A surreal and stunningly beautiful graphic novel about 
       death, mourning, and family by one of the most promising 
       young artists working today. "We buried one of dad's lungs,
       " announces the narrator of The Tenderness of Stones. The 
       lung is so large it takes three men to carry it--and that 
       is just the beginning. The family looks on as, under the 
       dispassionate orders of anonymous white-clad strangers, 
       their father is disassembled, piece by piece: His nose is 
       removed from his face and tied, temporarily, to his neck; 
       his other lung is pulled out and he is forced to lug it 
       around in a cart; his mouth is pried off and stored away, 
       leaving him mute. Beneath it all is one devastating truth:
       Soon, he will be gone entirely. Marion Fayolle is one of 
       the most innovative young artists in contemporary comics, 
       and in this startling, gorgeously drawn fable she offers a
       vision of family illness and grief that is by turns 
       playful and profound, literal and lyrical. She captures 
       the strange swirl of love, resentment, grief, and humor 
       that comes as we watch a loved one transformed before our 
       eyes, and learn to live without them"--|cProvided by
