About

A graphic memoir exploring the author’s memory of her first heartbreak. Created as an interactive, sequential experience, This is My Memory of First Heartbreak, Which I Can’t Quite Piece Back Together (TMMFH) attempts to convey the fluid and subjective nature of this highly emotional, complex, and (increasingly) distant memory. While at its core, this is a story of two young adults who argue on a suburban front porch late one summer night, it is really the story of the arc of their entire relationship. It is the complex set of occurrences surrounding the actual moment of heartbreak that make up the very fabric of it. Using her background in information graphics, Goldstick designed the experience of TMMFH as logically as possible, attempting to quantify and string together the events of the memory in a way that felt evocative and nostalgic.
