Description

The Hospital Suite is a landmark work by celebrated cartoonist and small-press legend John Porcellino-an autobiographical collection detailing his struggles with illness in the 1990s and 2000s. – – In 1997, John began to have severe stomach pain. He soon found out he needed emergency surgery to remove a benign tumour from his small intestine. In the wake of the surgery, John had numerous health complications that led to a flare-up of his pre-existing tendencies toward anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The Hospital Suite is Porcellino’s response to these expe-¼riences, simply told stories drawn in the honest, heart-wrenching style of his much-loved King-Cat mini-comics. Porcellino’s gift for spare yet eloquent candour makes The Hospital Suite an intimate portrayal of one person’s experiences that is also intensely relatable. – – Porcellino’s work is lauded for its universality and quiet, clear-eyed contemplation of everyday life. The Hospital Suite is a testimony to this subtle strength, making his struggles with the medical system and its consequences on his mental health accessible and engaging. –
