Meet Tava, a twenty-four-year-old medical student in a deep depression. Alice, her friend and housemate, is trying to figure out how to support her. Time unravels, leaving both women bewildered at the emotional landscapes that have opened before them.

This is such a beautiful beautiful book. Deeply thoughtful, deeply impressive. A real work of heart. - Clare Bowditch

I have never seen mental illness depicted in this way, and the illustrations convey the physical and emotional toll of depression more powerfully than anything I've ever seen before. This is an important book about a topic that still holds so much stigma, and the more people that read it the better.

Reviews for Eyes Too Dry

'I have never seen mental illness depicted in this way, and the illustrations convey the physical and emotional toll of depression more powerfully than anything I've ever seen before. This is an important book about a topic that still holds so much stigma, and the more people that read it the better.' Rebecca Shaw 'To struggle with the textures of our mental landscape can feel like the most brutalizing, lonely thing. What Chipkin and Tavassoli have gifted us is one-of-a-kind: the lens of kinship. Through their dual perspectives, we eavesdrop on a tender conversation: How can I be there for you? and How can I not push you away? While most media focuses on the so-called failures or successes of mentally ill people to regain normalcy, these artists keep their focus on relationship. We witness questions of health and the realities of illness as traversed through that most precious, private kingdom: homiedom. The depth and nuance of these pages is treasure in the palm.' Shira Erlichman
