October 13, 2017: Book Launch for ‘The Unravelling’ at Audrey’s Books in Edmonton

Clem Martini and Olivier Martini launch their new collaboration, a graphic memoir called The Unravelling, at Audrey’s Books on Friday, October 13, 2017.

In The UnravellingOlivier has lived with mother since he was diagnosed with schizophrenia thirty-six years ago. It hasn’t always been a perfect living situation, but it’s worked — Catherine has helped Olivier through the ups and downs of living with a mental illness, and Olivier has cared for his aging mother as her mobility becomes limited, and Olivier’s brothers Clem and Nic have provided support to both as well. But then Olivier experiences a health crisis at the exact same time that his mother starts slipping into dementia. What happens when the tenuous caregiving web that the Martinis have built up over the decades starts to come undone?

You can watch a clip of Clem talking about the book here or read an excerpt in the Globe and Mail.
