    Arrugas author Paco Roca E–book/E–pub Beautifully illustrated and touching story about life in an aged care home The main character grapples with the onset of Alzheimers while his roommate runs scams to raise enough cash to escape It's not a long story but it touches on so many issues of aging in such a heartfelt but somehow light hearted manner I read it in a single sitting and it left me with an air of melancholy for the rest of the day

You d think that a book chronicling an old man s abandonment by his son at an old age home and subseuent decent into dementia would be the single most depressing thing you read all yearInstead Paco Roca the straight up brilliant author and illustrator for this astoundingly beautiful graphic novel turns a forgotten man grappling with a horrifying disease into something very like a fairy tale Emilio a former bank manager is taken to an old age home by his bitter son when his rapidly worsening dementia becomes too much for him to deal with On his first day he meets his new roommate Miguel a sort of geriatric Artful Dodger who shows him the ropes Unaware of his diagnosis Emilio is nonplussed by his new surroundings where the residents spend most of their time sleeping until their next mealMiguel on the other hand is determined not to give in to old age without a fight He gleefully fleeces the less cogent residents of the home out of their meager savings and warns Emilio to stay away from the second floor of the home that houses the residents who can no longer take care of them selves He scoffs at the gentle and loving Georgette who gave up her own life to follow her husband Marcel another Alzheimer s patient and care for him He has no family of his own and he assures Emilio he s never needed anyone but himselfBut as Emilio slips further and further into forgetful darkness Miguel becomes almost desperate to keep his new found friend from being moved to the second floor and devises a daring and dangerous plan to help Emilio hang on to lifeThis is a beautiful beautiful story that handles one of the most heartbreaking and terrible diseases in existence with a graceful and very loving hand While its true we do see the darkness that comes with this illness the tantrums the violence and the damage done to loved ones Roca also weaves a sort of magic through the narrative through the eyes of those who are lost in their foggy memories In one lovely scene Miguel introduces Emilio to Mrs Rose who believes she is on the Orient Express bound for Istanbul The next panel reveals a beautiful young woman with a fur muff staring out the window of a moving train When they leave her room she is once again an old confused patient staring out into darkness This is a story where subtlety counts Because this is a disease that robs its victims of literally everything that defines them Roca recognizes and emphasizes the incredible importance of even the smallest glimpses of a rapidly disappearing past A tiny rise in the corners of the mouth or a subtle furrowing of the brow conveys volumes about a characterWhen asked how she s coaching a smile out of the otherwise blank faced Marcel Georgette reveals that all she is doing is repeating the word cheater Then the reader Georgette and Marcel drift together into the one shared memory the couple has left the day Marcel brought Georgette to the highest tower he could find because Georgette would only go out with him if he brought her a cloud As the low hanging clouds drift over the young boy and girl she smiles and calls him a cheater There is a deeply moving melancholy in the almost imperceptible smile the old couple share every time she says it This book is by turns touching heart breaking and really funny Roca s use of warm reds browns and oranges soften some of the darker scenes and his melancholy flashbacks to the days when the residents were whole and happy are uplifting rather than depressing Miguel s antics which could be taken as downright mean spirited instead make him rather endearing and his gradual deep affection for Emilio that will ultimately lead him to a startling decision feels very real and right There s a real sense of whimsy and delight throughout that I simply was not expectingI truly loved this book Its a reminder that even in the grips of such a devastating illness the people it affects are still people Roca is reminding us of the value and surprising beauty in every stage of life Even at the end when it seems as though the world has forgotten us there is still the possibility of connection of love and friendship
