Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The best book of the year...David B's scope and artistry put Epileptic on a par with Speigelman's holocaust masterpiece Maus. Andrew Arnold, Time.com's #1 Best Comic of the Year 2002

Review:

"Though it's superbly drawn, the beauty...is found in the writing and in David B's persistence in trying to understand a brother." The Guardian (UK)

Review:

"This is truly a remarkable and powerful piece of comics narration." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Synopsis:

The most acclamed European graphic novel of the 1990s, Epileptic is author David B.'s story of his brother's battle with epliepsy — but it tums into a penetrating and sometimes lacerating self-examination on the author's part, as he delves into his own complex emotions and his family's troubled history, as well as his own youthful fantasy life. Particularly pointed is his description of the family's joumey from one attempted cure to another (including acupuncture, spiritualism, and macrobiotic diet), the book is drawn in David B.'s spare but detailed, straightforward but elegant style. Co-published with France's L'Association.

Synopsis:

Visually recounts the story of the author's childhood in the 1960s and 1970s as his family experiments with acupuncture, spiritualism, and macrobiotic diets in search of a cure for his brother's epilepsy.
