Dancing at the Pity Party is Tyler Feder's graphic memoir that takes readers from her mother's first oncology appointment through the stages of her cancer to the funeral, sitting shiva. Feder wanted to create a book about grief and loss that she wished had existed when she needed it. She searched for a book that would “cradle [her] grief without smothering it.” Eight years after the death of her mother, Feder was able to produce a nurturing and frank look at what it is truly like to grieve.
Tyler Feder is a full-time illustrator based in Chicago. In 2012, Tyler began posting her artwork online, and within five years she had grown her illustration company, Roaring Softly, into a recognizable brand with a mix of witty pop culture art and intersectional feminist pieces. She has illustrated for Netflix, Comedy Central, and ESPN, and is the illustrator of Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin's Unladylike.
