Gotta get up. Gotta keep moving. This map – it says I have to cross over here. Wait, what’s that…?
And so begins a graphic novel story unlike any other: 49 Days. In Buddhist tradition, a person must travel for forty-nine days after they die, before they can fully cross over. Here in this book, readers travel with one Korean American girl, Kit, on her journey, while also spending time with her family and friends left behind.
Agnes Lee has captivated readers across the world for years with her illustrations for the New York Times Metropolitan Diary. Her debut graphic novel is an unforgettable story of death, grief, love, and how we keep moving forward.
“Agnes Lee’s storytelling is like her brushstroke, bold and deceptively simple. 49 Days captures the longing nature of grief; the unbearable loneliness in feeling close when we’re furthest apart. I didn’t want it to end.” – AJ Dungo, creator of In Waves
