Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andldquo;Romance is dead.andrdquo; Or so says Pamela Green, a middle-aged romance novelist suffering from writerandrsquo;s block. Then, as she crosses a bridge over the Thames in London, her unsettled life collides with that of a ragged young man who has survived for months on Londonandrsquo;s streets, getting by on his wits . . . and his looks. Under extraordinary circumstances, Pamela invites him into her comfortable suburban home. There, in spite of their obvious differences, they soon form an unlikely partnership, their once-separate lives revived and sent off in stark new directions. An intense hothouse drama, fierce and true to life, Room for Love is an original graphic novel unafraid to play with fire.

Synopsis:

Combining manga and the timeless texts of Shakespeareand#8217;s plays, this series translates some of the greatest works of literature into a new format. In King Lear, the aging kingand#8212;here a Native Americanand#8212;must decide how to split his kingdom among his daughters. When he scorns his one dutiful daughter and trusts the two selfish ones, he pays a steep price.
