    One thought on “Wrinkles”

    1. Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old.Jonathan SwiftOld age should burn and rave at close of day, a poet told us, and as long as one isn’t in that stage of life yet, one could tend to agree vigorously with him. Assuming that living a life in human dignity requires a certain degree of freedom, autonomy and individuality, people sometimes postulate that if they would find themselves debilitating and in a situation deprived of the essentialities of what makes us human and wh [...]

    2. LA BANDA DEGLI INVISIBILI Non è facile trovare una graphic novel che racconti la terza età, che si dedichi agli anziani.Qui, di questa fase della vita si è scelto un aspetto che trovo sconvolgente, la malattia chiamata Alzheimer, la perdita di memoria, di contatto con la realtà, lo smarrimento del sé.Paco Roca ha studiato, si è documentato, si percepisce, e si vede. Non prende scorciatoie, racconta tutto, senza compiacimento, senza cercare la lacrima facile. Che proprio non serve perché t [...]

    3. Dal mio blog erigibbiRughe – Paco Roca: un graphic novel toccante, commovente ma anche umoristico che parla di anzianità e AlzheimerIl protagonista di questo graphic novel è Emilio, un anziano direttore di banca affetto dal morbo di Alzheimer e che verrà ricoverato dalla sua famiglia in una residenza per la terza età. Qui Emilio verrà a conoscenza della sua malattia e cercherà di contrastarla: vuole mantenere la sua memoria e la sua indipendenza e vuole evitare a tutti i costi l’ultimo [...]

    4. [Boing!]There are books and movies that I hate but recommend to everybody. They are good books and movies—and often times are even great books and movies. I recommend them because they are good or great. I am able to recognize their nearness to whatever we might be tempted to describe as objective quality. They are well-composed and well-accomplished. Their artistry is evident and clear. And more than that, they speak to some integral aspect of the human condition. They, through craft and tale [...]

    5. Quando la nostra memoria lentamente si cancellaTolgo il libro dal cellophane, lo apro lentamente, con le pagine che scricchiolano perché è la prima volta che lo sfoglio. Non so assolutamente di cosa tratti, mi sono fidato solo di buone recensioni, la sorpresa mi piace sempre molto.Guardo le prime immagini e vengo risucchiato nella storia del libro.Emilio è un uomo anziano; ogni tanto dimentica qualcosa, a volte si infuria per questo, a volte si alza in piena notte per "andare a lavorare", sco [...]

    6. Beautifully drawn, finely balanced between humor and drama, this graphic novel about a group of spanish folks struggling with senility is a pearl.

    7. «Dolores, che dici a Modesto per farlo sorridere?»«Oh, niente, gli dico: imbroglione»«Imbroglione?»

    8. I read this because I first read Seth T's actual professional-level review that can be found on his amazing website Good Ok Bad: Home of the 3-Star Review. If you like comics, I would check it out, definitely.This is my first experience with Roca's work, for which he did research by hanging out at retirement homes. The main character is Ernest, who has Alzheimer’s disease, and is not a big community person. Along the way he becomes more of one, making a friend or two along the way. There is a [...]

    9. You'd think that a book chronicling an old man's abandonment by his son at an old age home and subsequent decent into dementia would be the single most depressing thing you read all year.Instead 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 worsenin [...]

    10. Wow, what a powerful and moving book. I've got a father in a long-term care facility, and this story particularly hit home.

    11. O blogue deu-me a conhecer novos autores, novos géneros de leitura. E este foi um deles. Até então desconhecia as graphic novels e, confesso, que até fui um pouco conservadora nesse aspecto. Mas arrisquei. Estou cada vez mais a gostar de ler Gaphic Novels. Já li algumas e têm sido leituras muito agradáveis.Já tinha visto este livro pelo e fiquei curiosa pela temática abordada: o envelhecimento. Até que o descobri na biblioteca da minha zona e veio comigo. Tinha mesmo que o ler. Já me [...]

    12. Hard and heart-breaking but cute and sooo necessary. Most of the times we don't want to face how our lives will be when we get old, we don't want to consider the possibility of aging. We just know how to be young and we believe we'll always be. So we turn our backs to old people, banning them from our every day lives and visiting them just once a week or a month at caring homes or residences, not paying too much attention to them. We forget they played an important part in our lives and in socie [...]

    14. This was a fantastic emotional read. Having put a grandmother in assistant care this brought up all the emotions all over again. We all have to deal with aging family members and the stress,love, guilt,pain. I don't want to spoil, I'll paste the description below. Fantastic ( if you been through this, get ready to be choked up) Paco Roca Two elderly residents of an assisted living facility employ clever tricks to mask their ongoing deterioration, culminating in a riotous nighttime breakout. With [...]

    15. 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.

    16. Come ha detto il mio professore, leggetelo quando siete al culmine della felicità perchè vi spezzerà il cuore. Ma è fatto benissimo

    17. In old age is life for living or for existing?This is a beaut graphic novel telling the story of Emilio who suffering from dementia enters an old persons home. He settles into communal life where the day revolves around waking, eating, sleeping, pill popping and the occasional game of bingo. There is not a lot to keep for the residents to be excited about, even with Emilio's roommate Miguel's attempts to liven things up.The story packs a punch in the short flashbacks of residents where there liv [...]

    18. Una storia struggente e emozionante, delicata nelle tematiche e nelle modalità utilizzate per affrontarle. Emilio é un anziano signore che viene 'abbandonato' dal figlio in una casa di riposo ed è proprio qui che avvengono le azioni della nostra storia. Fra amicizie, paure, tristezze e tanto altro Emilio vive i suoi ultimi anni affetto dal morbo dell Alzheimer che sempre più lo priva dei ricordi importanti della sua vita. Parlare di malattia e morte non è mai una cosa facile, si rischia di [...]

    19. Un buon fumetto non cerca di essere ciò che non è. Perché un fumetto non è un romanzo o un racconto, né una serie di illustrazioni o un film su carta.Niente di tutto questo. Il fumetto è fumetto. Vive una vita propria, forse relegata ai margini delle forme d'espressione artistica, ma usa i suoi strumenti che sono solo suoi e lo rendono unico.E Rughe di Paco Roca ne è un perfetto esempio.

    20. La trama si concentra su Emilio, un anziano che soffre di Alzheimer e che per questo viene portato dalla sua famiglia in casa riposo.La lettura è veloce e il finale anche se prevedibile lascia un po' tristi. Ho apprezzato come Paco Roca abbia esplorato questa malattia, il suo modo di rappresentarla è semplice, chiaro e suggestivo (come secondo me si vede bene già dalla copertina). L'autore ha scritto di un mondo, quello degli anziani, poco considerato e l'ha fatto nel migliore dei modi. Una d [...]

    21. Me encantó el dibujo, me encantó el guion, me encantó la narrativa, me encantaron los personajes, la temática, la ambientación. Me encantó prácticamente todo, incluso el horrible, triste e inevitable final. Pero lo que más me gustó de este libro fue lo cabalítico que resultó: Cuando lo leí me quedé pensando en mis abuelos, los dos que ya no están y mis abuelas, que por suerte sí están -y esperemos que por muchos años más y muy saludables-, pero que ya dan muestras de senilidad, [...]

    22. Rughe è la prima opera che leggo di Paco Roca ed è stata eccezionale e sensibile al tempo stesso.I disegni sono chiari e puliti e i colori fantastici!Sebbene questa storia si legga in due ore scarse, il livello emozionale è elevato.Si narra della storia della vecchiaia di Emilio, un anziano signore spedito dal figlio in un ricovero per anziani. Qui farà la conoscenza di Miguel, un altro anziano signore che si ritiene fortunato ad essere solo senza figli, nipoti o amici che lo vanno a trovare [...]

    23. Historia triste y entrañable sobre la vida diaria de un grupo de ancianos en una residencia, Paco Roca ofrece una visión personal acerca de algo cercano a todos, la vejez, la de nuestros seres queridos y la nuestra. Puede parecer aburrido pero la historia tiene buen ritmo y nos implicamos emocionalmente muy rápido con los personajes, el sentimiento y la nostalgia que el autor imprime en esta obra puede llevarnos a las lágrimas con mucha facilidad.

    24. Um livro poderoso que nos fala sobre o envelhecimento e a angústia que causa aos seus protagonistas.Um idoso, impossibilitado de continuar a viver sozinho, é levado para um lar, que passará a ser a sua nova casa, vê-se confrontado com toda a espécie de problemas que a velhice acarreta: as limitações físicas, a doença, a perda de memória e em última instância de autonomia.Muito bom!!

    25. «Qué se yo. Cambiemos el mundo. Cambiar el mundo es algo muy serio como para dejárselo a los jóvenes. Ellos ya tienen bastante con pensar en sexo y drogas»

    26. Durísimo y maravilloso. El Alzheimer es tremendamente cruel y este libro refleja la enfermedad tal y como es. Es una lectura difícil pero en mi opinión muy necesaria.

    27. Cómo afrontar el tema de la vejez y de la enfermedad de una forma tierna e inteligente a la vez.Muy recomendablehierbaroja.wordpress/20

    28. Estas historias hacen falta. Una situación a las que todos llegaremos y sin embargo tan ignorada por la mayoría de nosotros. Nuestros mayores pasan de llevar una vida propia y sentirse útiles a resultar un estorbo y una molestia para todos los que le rodean. Es una situación compleja y que se agrava puesto que cada vez somos más longevos y requerimos más atenciones al llegar a una edad avanzada.
