A graphic novel and a visual diary that records one woman’s will to survive against the overwhelming pull of the deep.
When her persistent sore throat turned into a deadly bacterial infection, Zara Slattery was placed in a drug-induced coma, which she describes as ‘being trapped in a nightmare state that you can’t wake up from’. With mythological creatures appearing out of nowhere, she battles to protect her three children against the forces of evil that threaten to engulf her. Meanwhile, her husband Dan tries to keep family life going as he faces the difficult task of preparing the children for the likely loss of their mother. His diary, and that of the nurses in the Intensive Care Unit, who kept a record of Zara’s illness, interweave to make a heartbreaking graphic memoir.
