Book Review: Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony & Rodrigo Corral

“And now, breaking news out of the Bronx. World famous pianist Glory Fleming is missing.

Glory’s piano playing dominated her life until Frank moved in next door, helping her discover a part of life outside music. Unfortunately, he has also slowly become an escape from real life. Now that Glory has gone missing, it’s up to you to figure out if she’s lost or if she’s just lost her grip on reality.

My Review:
If you love storytelling through art, you’ll love this book. Told through letters, photos, journal entries, reports, drawings and postcards, this is both a book and a work of art you can let yourself sink into.

Glory’s descent from isolated virtuoso piano player into a fragile girl in love who only plays the song “Chopsticks” happens so gradually you might find yourself looking back for clues to her mental state before she disappeared. Did Glory really lose touch with reality? In this book, it’s up to you to figure out what’s real and what’s only an illusion.
