Stitches is a graphic memoir written by David Small. It tells the story of his own childhood and teenage years trying to survive tough events such as sickness, his father's experiences, bullies and his angry mother, with the help of drawings and art. It is a story about voicelessness and art was his main means of communication so the use of the Comics medium seems pretty natural. In his memoir, David Small describes his relationships, enhances the theme of silence and add depth to his story through his careful page and panel composition, use of black and white and use of allegories.
