Review-A-Day

"Three sisters, M'Rose, Elle, and Celina, meander through the first day of summer vacation in a small town on the tropical island of Guadeloupe, their paths criss-crossing with a motley collection of other boys and girls. Throughout the day, they engage in a variety of mischief and delinquency: from experimenting with tobacco and alcohol to committing acts of impulsive thievery to provoking a fistfight between a trash-talking bully and a brooding, scrawny underdog. They gain insights into themselves and each other through their awkward and sometimes mildly sadistic interactions." David Kennedy-Logan, Rain Taxi (Read the entire Rain Taxi review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the first day of summer vacation, teenaged sisters MRose, Elle, and Célina step out into the tropical heat of their island home and continue their headlong tumble toward adulthood. Boys, schoolyard fights, petty thievery, and even illicit alcohol make for a heady mix, as The Zabime Sisters indulge in a little summertime freedom. The dramatic backdrop of a Caribbean island provides a study of contrasts—a world that is both lush and wild, yet strangely small and intimate—which echoes the contrasts of the sisters themselves, who are at once worldly and wonderfully naïve.

Master storyteller Aristophanes The Zabime Sisters takes a keen look at some of the universal experiences of children on the cusp of growing up, in the fascinating setting of Guadeloupe. Aristophanes bold, graphic brushwork weaves a wild texture through this gentle, clear-eyed tale.

About the Author

Aristophane Boulon, who published under his first name, was trained as a fine artist before moving into the world of narrative art, where he made an immediate splash in the French comics world. Not quite ten years after the initial publication of Les Soeurs Zabîme, Aristophane died in 2007. He is deeply missed.
