Miriam Katin on Letting It Go

Miriam Katin is an incredibly talented artist whose second graphic novel is Letting It Go. Her first book was published when she was in her sixties and recounted her and her mother escaping Budapest before the Nazi arrival, hiding out in the countryside during World War II. Her new book is very different tale. In it, Katin's adult son announces that he intends to move to Berlin, a decision to which she does not respond well. It is the story of her coming to terms with his choice and her own feelings about the city. It is also funny and light-hearted, as playful as her first book was stark. It was a real pleasure to talk with Ms. Katin. I hope it shows.
