Exit Wounds

Drawn & Quarterly, 2007 - 172 Seiten
Exit Wounds is the North American graphic novel debut of one of Israel's best-known cartoonists. Rutu Modan has received several awards in Israel and abroad, including the Best Illustrated Children's Book Award from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem (four times) and Young Artist of the Year by the Israel Ministry of Culture. She is a chosen artist of the Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation. The Jerusalem Post writes: "Her painstakingly detailed work, rich with intricate patterns and delightful designs, [is] instantly recognizable."In this unlikely story of love set in modern-day Tel Aviv, a young man, Koby Franco, receives an urgent phone call from a female soldier. Learning that his estranged father may have been a victim of a suicide bombing in Hadera, Koby reluctantly joins the soldier in searching for clues. His death would certainly explain his empty apartment and disconnected phone line. As Koby tries to unravel the mystery of his father's death, he finds himself piecing together not only the last few months of his father's life but his entire identity. With thin, precise lines and luscious watercolours, Modan creates a portrait of modern Israel, a place where sudden death mingles with the slow dissolution of family ties.
