Review “Life Support exemplifies the genre of graphic medicine. Spare and raw, we are thrust into the physicality of health and illness, bodies and fluids, as well as emotions deep and intense. She offers us feelings, ugly and unrepentant at times, with moments of grace at others, and in the process of the work, reveals a healing balm, years in the making.”—Joel L. Kushner, Director, Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health“As she attended to her mother’s declining days, Judith Margolis instinctively, deeply recorded them in art and text that have the quality of prayer. One sees in this work the profound tenderness of attention. From within the great hollow of loss, this book offers unexpected comfort. Margolis lifts up an art and practice that attend to the ineffable, and in whose spirit loss becomes presence.”—Elizabeth Robinson, author of On Ghosts Read more About the Author Judith Margolis is the art editor of נשים / NASHIM, Journal of Jewish Women’s Studies and Gender Issues, cocurator of Women of the Book, an international visual Torah midrash project, and creative director of Bright Idea Books.
