Jonathan is a graphic artist who partnered with Christine Kampen Robinson, a University of Waterloo PhD candidate in German studies with an interest in Mennonites, to create a cartoon strip “Mennonites Talking About Miriam Toews” which appeared in Walrus magazine. Miriam Toews is an author most noted for her novel A Complicated Kindness, which was set in a Mennonite community in Manitoba’s Bible belt. She has since gone on to write other novels about Mennonites.
This is an interesting use of the cartoon strip to organize interviews with a large number of persons. Most interesting are the portraits where the person says nothing. Why?
