Apple Skin to the Core : A Memoir in Words and Pictures By Gansworth, Eric, 1965- Book - 2020

I was only a few pages into Eric Gansworth’s Apple: Skin to the Core when I realized how important it was that I read this book, which bursts open a derogatory label to reveal the author’s Indigenous experience. From Gansworth’s reality—living in poverty on a reservation, an Onondaga among Tuscaroras—to the near erasure of his culture via boarding schools only two generations prior, this memoir in verse holds a magnifying glass to white supremacy in action. Stylishly rendered to mirror the evolution of The Beatles, this coming-of-age story is enlightening, and often heartbreaking, and outsiders and outliers will find themselves within.
