Praise for Ephemera
"A gorgeously drawn meditation on those who matter most to us. Sublime." - Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese)

"Ephemera is a beautifully rendered melancholy memoir. A deep mix of fondness and sadness. A lovely work!" - Peter Bagge

"The ethereal art and poetic writing of Briana Loewinsohn's Ephemera feels like a dream that is both magical and heartbreaking." - Thien Pham (Level Up)

About Ephemera
A debut graphic novel that poignantly blends memoir, magic realism, and graphic medicine.

Ephemera is a poetic and dreamlike take on a graphic memoir set in a garden, a forest, and a greenhouse. The story drifts among a grown woman, her early memories as a child, and the gossamer existence of her mother. A lyrical entry in the field of graphic medicine, Ephemera is a story about a daughter trying to relate to a parent who struggles with mental illness. Gorgeously illustrated in a painted palette of warmy, earthy tones, it is a quiet book of isolation, plants, confusion, acceptance, and the fog of childhood. Loewinsohn’s debut book is an aching, meditative twist on autobiography, infusing the genre with an ethereal fusion of memory and imagination.
