Kristen Radtke’s new and magnificent hybrid work is at once an illustrated memoir and a fascinating study on the under-appreciated effects of loneliness on the human body and mind. Moreover, it is a work of breathtaking empathy for the human condition. Perhaps in no other time in modern history has it been more important for us to understand our individual and collective loneliness and how we can rebuild the human connections that sustain us. Radtke’s writing is heartfelt and questioning, and her drawings bring a wonderful vitality and resonance to the text. SEEK YOU is the book that we need now—a relevant and poignant tribute to the “skin hunger” innate in all of us.
