Retired bank manager Emilio, suffering from Alzheimer’s, is taken to an assisted living home by his son. He befriends his roommate Miguel, an overconfident ladies’ man. Together, they employ clever tricks to keep the doctors from noticing Emilio’s ongoing deterioration ― and keep him from being transferred to the dreaded confinement of the top floor of the facility. ("Better to die than to end up there." Their determination to stay active as individuals and maintain their dignity culminates in an adventurous escape.

About the Author:

Paco Roca (Francisco Martínez Roca) is a graphic artist and a cartoonist from Valencia, Spain, who has won several art/writing awards. His graphic novel Wrinkles has been adapted into an animated movie.

Review:

“Roco's visual style is an appealing, effective amalgamation of cartoonishness and realism... distinguished by its gentle humor and sympathetic if ultimately unsparing compassion.”
- Gordon Flagg, Booklist

“This distressing yet humorous story offers an empathetic glimpse of the brave humanity of aging people and the challenges in caring for them.”
- Martha Cornog, Library Journal

Wrinkles is... a really well done book, powerful, melancholic, bittersweet, heartbreaking, beautifully drawn.”
- Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International
