When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over

Mandy Ord

A poignant, bright and elegiac work of illustrated nonfiction by one of Australia’s most revered comics makers.

When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over is a quietly enthralling and intimate work about the search for meaning in the everyday, and what it might mean to belong. A record of a year of a life, When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over is an attempt to pin down time, to capture the most beautiful and fleeting moments that we tend to rush past.

This is the story of a person and those that surround her. It’s about ageing, love, and loss, and how we might try to balance work and family and art in this confusing modern world. Funny, sad, and perfectly magnetic, When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over draws you in deep; before you know it you’re caring intensely about the lives into which we are given some precious glimpses.
