This wry genre-bending graphic novel from Goto delves into aging, independence, lost love, and mortality with a whimsy that doesn't undercut its literary heft. Kumiko Saito, an elderly Japanese Canadian woman, runs away from an assisted living facility to reclaim her autonomy and embrace a solitary-but not lonely-life. Putting off her overbearing daughter and living on the bare essentials, Kumiko relishes swimming, simple cooking, and shopping on her own. Soon, however, Kumiko senses a presence encroaching on her solitude-a shadowy being that wants to take her somewhere she's not ready to go.

Soon Kumiko has trapped Death in her vacuum cleaner. Now what does she do with it?
