Killing and Dying by Adrian Tomine

Breathtaking acuity and startling illustration

'In February, when my mind was unclouded enough to appraise everything, I decided we would return to California'

A collection of six powerful graphic novellas each with a new protagonist dealing with their own truths. Most memorable is 'Hortisculpture' about one guy's pursuit of his tree art. Most moving is 'Translated' about one woman's journey home to California from Japan.

Adrian Tomine writes with breathtaking acuity and startling illustration.
