I'm in the middle of too many books! I started a book by aboriginal author Thomas King, and then I bought my next frog-read by Brussel Sprout, but then remembered I had to read Lani Diane Rich's first book cause they talked about it last Sunday and I wanted to read it before the discussion so I started that, and then a book I reserved at the library came in!
The library book is winning cause it's a graphic novel, won't take me long. I'm halfway done but I don't think it's too early to start praising it. I wrote in November about one of my fave graphic novelists, Guy Delisle, and now I'm reading his latest about Jerusalem. It's a great book for showing daily life in the Palestinian areas, Arab quarters, Jewish settlements, and so forth.
And since Delisle doesn't know a lot about the politics of the area, it's a pretty good primer. I can't recommend it enough. It might even be available at your library cause I think it's been a big seller. ...Maybe even available in Red states! given its subject matter.
I scanned the first cartoon for you cause I think it really sums up his style. He gets a lot across in very few panels, few words. They'll be bigger if you click on them (you might need to open them in a new window, Bloggers' viewer makes them still too small.)
