Back cover text:
Can Gala resist the ties that bind, or will she be drawn once more into a world skewed by fear and suspicion? To avoid being caught in the web of her father’s self-delusion, she fled to another continent.
Now she has returned, she must confront the unbearable weight of her past. A flawed father is seen clearly at last through his daughter’s eyes in a multi-layered narrative that echoes the shifts and loops of memory.
Delicately drawn in fragments of memory, Pelmanism is a moving journey of self-discovery. With her father’s breakdown, Gala finds herself pulled back into the toxic family dynamics she thought she had eluded. Through ripples of the past, we begin to piece together the reality of a family that has lived a lie for as long as she can remember. But what kind of truth can memory really offer?
