BY DAVID STEINBERG / FOR THE JOURNAL
The dominant theme of Mira Jacob’s new book “Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations” is race in America.
Though the graphic memoir’s subject is weighty, the text and the graphics infuse the book with a relaxed, approachable tone and imagery from the get-go. Conversational, indeed. Jacobs is the book’s author and illustrator.
The book’s opening conversation is between Mira and her 6-year-old son, Z. It focuses on his obsession with his idol, Michael Jackson.
