I received a copy of Tales From behind the Window through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Tales From Behind the Window is the true story of three women from Turkey, and the systematic male dominance they’ve experienced on a daily basis throughout their lives. Edanur Kuntman wrote and illustrated this novel as a way to honor and showcase everything her grandmother went through. And it’s a beautiful tribute, as well as being a powerful reminder of how far we’ve come.
From now on, when I think of a graphic novel that carried with it some serious weight and impact, I’m going to think of Tales From Behind the Window. One of the reasons it was so powerful is the fact that it is all based on true stories. It certainly increased the emotional intensity of it all – tenfold.
I honestly can’t encourage everyone enough to go ahead and give Tales From Behind the Window a read. It’s worth it – trust me. It may break you just a little bit, but the end result is something utterly empowering and beautiful.
What Edanur Kuntman created here was truly beautiful. Not only the story itself, but the message and the artwork as well. Everything about this piece was lovely and memorable.
