I thought Signature Wound was a serious political screed when I first saw it mentioned in the NYT Book Review interview of historian Gary Wills. He said it was the one book he wished Barak Obama would read. When it arrived from Inter-library Loan I was surprised to discover that it's actually an excerpt from Doonesbury in the form of a graphic novel. The warm endorsement on the cover from Gen. Peter Pace, USMC, Ret. (the 16th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs) surprised me again. But the real shock came as I read the story itself. I couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry. Over the years that I've lost touch, Gary Trudeau has gotten better than I ever thought possible.

FROM THE BACK COVER:

Trudeau offers the unairbrushed truth of a painful and unpredictable path to recovery, and reveals the broader perspective of (Traumatic Brain Injury's) impact on families and friends ... Countless Toggles and B.D.'s will recognize themselves sketched in these frames, and perhaps will breathe a little easier, comforted by the realization that they are not alone."

--Gen. Peter Pace,USMC (Ret.),
Sixteenth Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
