Jokes and the Unconscious

Heard the one about the dying father? In this savagely brilliant graphic novel by poet Daphne Gottlieb (Final Girl) and Hothead Paisan creator Diane DiMassa, a 19-year-old woman named Sasha loses her father to cancer. Taking its title from Freud’s Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious, Gottlieb and DiMassa’s collaboration is both moving and darkly funny. Where comedy meets chemo, where mirth meets mortality, Jokes and the Unconscious explores the murky terrain of grief. (2006, Cleis Press)
