Look Again by Elizabeth A. Trembley
Street Noise Books, September 2022

The graphic memoir Look Again recounts Elizabeth Trembley’s experience, years ago, of walking her dogs in the woods and finding a dead body. Trauma can make truth hard to find. Have you ever experienced a terror, grief, or confusion so great that when you try to share it you can only find shattered images floating in darkness? You try over and over, but can’t tell the story, to yourself or to anyone else. Look Again presents six variations of the same event, seen through the different lenses caused by other life revelations. It explores the fragmenting nature of trauma by tracing the convoluted evolution of the author’s story, a process often experienced by trauma sufferers and their loved ones. Trembley is a Lambda Literary Award-winning mystery writer (pen name Josie Gordon) and memoirist who now tells her stories in comics. She has a Ph.D. in Literature from the University of Chicago and has taught college courses and public workshops on storytelling and comics. She currently works for the Sequential Artists Workshop.
