This superbly evocative graphic novella by the award-winning Norwegiancartoonist Jason (his first appearance in the English language) starts off as amelancholy childhood memoir and then, with a shocking twist midway through,becomes the summary of lives lived, wasted, and lost. Like Art Spiegelman didwith Maus , Jason utilizes anthropomorphic stylizations to reach deeper,more general truths, and to create elegantly minimalist panels whose emotionaldepth-charge comes as an even greater shock.
