Everything Is Teeth
Everything Is Teeth | Evie Wyld
56 posts | 68 read | 140 to read
When she was a little girl, passing her summers in the heat of coastal Australia, Evie Wyld was captivated by sharks by their innate ruthlessness, stealth, and immeasurable power and they have never released their hold on her imagination. From the award-winning author of "All the Birds, Singing, "here is a deeply moving graphic memoir about family, love, loss, and the irresistible forces that, like sharks, course through life unseen, ready to emerge at any moment. "Black-and-white illustrations throughout.""

1. Interesting graphic novel I stumbled upon. I love sharks, so I had to check it out!
2. Chocolate
3. My engagement and wedding rings, 10 year anniversary ring, and a necklace with a charm shaped like The state of Indiana.
4. Usually pants and a long sweater when it is cold, sundress or skirt when warmer.
5. Nope!!

Wonderful illustration. I can appreciate the significance of sharks on her life, but I was left wanting to know more about her and her family.

I read this whole thing during a breastfeeding session. It's not very long, but oh my, the feels it bestows! Equal parts dark and hilarious. I really enjoyed the comic book format and artwork. If you have about an hour, pls dive into this one. #recommendsday

I thought I would take a bit of a break from action heavy comics after last week's Saga binge.

This is a lovely graphic memoir, quiet and deceptively straight forward. The art is excellent, I love the cartoon style of her childhood juxtaposed with the terrifying realism of the shark. I find myself thinking back to the story again and again after reading. Definitely worth a re-read before it goes back to the library.

Fascinated and haunted by sharks as a child, Wyld looks back on her fears and how they shaped her coming-to-terms with mortality as an adult. A moving, charming and subtle memoir in graphic format. Beautiful art by Joe Sumner combines high contrast inked cartoony images with realistic, delicate pencil work.

Libby1 I just read Evie Wyld's All the Birds, Singing last week. 5 ⭐️ 3y
Lindy @Libby1 Oh, yes! I gave it 5 stars too. ❤️ 3y

When I was little I once stepped on a baby shark on the pier. My uncle spent many years recounting this story. Now I'm both terrified and fascinated by them. Evie Wyld's graphic memoir about sharks in her childhood was so good and entertaining. None of her sharks wear cool sunglasses though.

Graphic memoir by the author of "All the Birds, Singing." Wyld's childhood fascination with & terror of sharks is balanced with humanity's environmental destruction & cruelty towards animals. Joe Sumner's artwork is wonderful. A quick, memorable graphic memoir.

vivastory @Owlizabeth I haven't read "Everything is Teeth" but I loved her novel "All the Birds, Singing". I like to read graphic novels and poetry for reading slumps. This can lead to real gems. 3y

I have loved sharks since Dad and I established a tradition of watching Shark Week together when I was about 10. So, I was probably destined to really enjoy this part-memoir, part-shark ode. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wyld's narration is stark and threatening, full of holes for the reader's own mind to fill, like shadows under water. Its panels are bare, empty, near-colorless as it recounts Evie's childhood obsession with sharks--a danger she can know in a way she can't with her family's problems--and they teach her to hope, to survive. Her idol, shark attack survivor Rodney Fox, fought and lived. Evie can too, as long as she doesn't give up.

Quiet graphic memoir about the cycles of life, family, apex predators, and a girl's fascination with sharks. Great illustrations - the shark attack pictures were graphic, and my youngest pointed out all the different species of sharks drawn throughout the book.

Very simply illustrated but oh so striking. It's a simple story about a girl's lifelong obsession with sharks and things that lurk out of sight. I wish it was more indepth but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

In this engaging memoir we get snippets of Evie's childhood experiences and lifelong obsession with sharks. I really liked the juxtaposition of drawings and photorealistic sharks. Glad this caught my eye at the library!

It's about a girl's obsession with sharks, but so much more besides. I keep flipping between the pages, trying to choose a favourite image and failing. My graphic novel pick of the year so far.

This was an awesome graphic memoir. I have an obsession with sharks and could relate to many of the things that she talks about. Shark week is probably my favorite thing to watch in the summer. She does an incredible job telling her story of growing up in Australia and the artwork is stunning.

I wondered why Evie Wyld chose the comic form for her memoir, but the second I opened this and saw Joe Sumner's incredible art, I knew exactly why. This tale of Wyld's childhood obsession with sharks is gorgeous and visceral.
