Blankets Is An Inspiring Piece of Art


By Craig Thompson

Publisher Summary

Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grade and the origins of faith.
