Heard great things about this graphic novel on the GoodOkBad.com website where it’s his #2 graphic novel of all time.
I see why. This book by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba is my favorite book so far on 2012, and completely amazing. I keep being astounded what the graphic novel form can do.
This book started as a series of 10 comics, which do read like chapters in a book. Each one of them a turning point in the life of a Brazilian newspaper writer and author, each with it’s own style. The last chapter especially is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. Actually made me feel better about my father-in-law’s passing.
Beautiful, glorious book. Can’t recommend any more. Get this one.
Read again on January 10, 2013 in one day. Just a beautiful book. Makes you realize death is part of life. Really hits your heart and makes you cry. Also helps me while my dad is in hospice and my father in law died in March, 2012. This is one of my favorite 10 books of all time. Spectacular.
