C. Tyler delves deeper into her family history in this emotional sequel to the Eisner-nominated You'll Never Know Book One: A Good and Decent Man.

The first volume of You’ll Never Know showed Carol’s initial, sometimes difficult attempts at grappling with her father Chuck’s traumatic World War II experiences by bringing them to light. As Book 2 begins, she is startled to discover that Chuck’s decision to suddenly, after 60 years, open up to her on the subject has motivations that go far beyond his desire to reveal his past ― putting even more pressure on an already explosive relationship. In any event, Carol finally begins to delve into, and re-tell, Chuck’s horrific wartime experiences in Italy (which are worse than even she had imagined).

But back in the present, the cycle of family dysfunction continues as Carol’s own daughter runs into her own trouble, leading Carol into further exploration of her family’s buried traumas and sorrows ― with an expanded reprinting of the out-of-print “The Hannah Story,” Tyler’s superb chronicle of the short life and accidental death of her older sister, a heart-rending story (named one of the “100 Best Comics of the 20th Century” in a Comics Journal survey) that in turn sheds light on her parents’ subsequent lives and patterns of behavior. Everything is connected, and the past is never just the past... 104 pages of full-color comics

About the Author:

Carol Tyler was born and raised in Chicago and now a resident of Cincinnati. She was one of the first women to emerge from the underground comix movement. Her collection Late Bloomer, created after abandoning comics for nearly 20 years, was named in several end-of-the-year “best of” lists, as was the first volume of You'll Never Know, which was also nominated for two 2010 Eisner Awards (Best Writer/Artist and Best Painter/Multimedia Artist).

Review:

“Starred Review: Tyler’s fluid, expressive linework, complemented by subtly overlaid watercolors, gives ideal visual expression to a narrative that’s at once sensitive and hardnosed. This initial volume of a planned trilogy is Tyler’s first book-length effort, but decades of drawing mostly autobiographical stories have honed her skills, enabling her to produce a work that ranks in quality with the graphic memoirs of Alison Bechdel (Fun Home) and Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis).”
- Booklist

“She understands people with an acuity that is tender, wise and devastating.”
- Jim Woodring

“Her work has the extremely rare quality of genuine, authentic heart.”
- R. Crumb

“If you want to find out what happened to Willie and Joe after they got home from World War II, You’ll Never Know is the perfect place to start. C. Tyler’s graphic novel, passionately conceived and brilliantly drawn, extends the range of Bill Mauldin to cover the aftershock of the Last Good War on the warriors who fought it and the collateral damage to their families. Not since Catch-22 has anyone probed the secret heart of the Greatest Generation with this kind of raw, icon busting courage.”
- Tom Mathews (Our Fathers’ War: Growing Up in the Shadow of the Greatest Generation)

“It’s impossible not to compare You’ll Never Know with Art Spiegelman’s Maus, the first great graphic novel about what happened to a cartoonist’s father during World War II. Tyler’s book is a vivid, affecting, eccentrically stylish frame built around a terrible silence.”
- The New York Times Book Review
