The October choice for the Quiet Place Book Club

 

In his first full length graphic novel since Shortcomings in 2007, Adrian Tomine has produced another unforgettable collection of stories and characters: 'Amber Sweet' shows the disastrous impact of mistaken identity in a hyper-connected world; 'A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture' details the invention and destruction of a vital new art form in short comic strips; 'Translated, from the Japanese' is a lush, full-colour display of storytelling through still images; 'Intruders' depicts a man obsessively trying to find his way back to a former life.

 

From the master of the small gesture, it is a fraught, realist masterpiece about the weight of love and its absence, the pride and disappointment of family, the anxiety and hopefulness of being alive in the twenty-first century.
