Description

A coming of age story in the tradition of Tillie Walden’s
Spinning.

Antoine, 13 years old, is on holiday at the seaside with his
parents and his younger brother, Titi. Both spend most of their time drawing, at
restaurants and on the beach. One night, Antoine discovers another person lying
in their bedroom. Helene is 16 years old; she and her mother came
to spend a few days and her presence and behavior will change Antoine’s
life.

In “A Sister”, Bastien Vives, a master of suggestion,
conveys the stumbling awakenings of adolescent desire. The story is a narrative
jewel, created by one of the most important authors of the contemporary
international graphic novel scene.

Publisher Review

Great art! ZOO A sensitive and touching story. BD CHANNEL Vives knows how to relate intimacy, desire and embarrassment. It is an album to read and reread. DBD Don't miss one of the best comics of the year. TMAGAZINE Bastien Vives manages to bring out in small touches, by the positions of his characters, by their looks, by the simplicity of their conversations, the power, the ambivalence and the sweetness of feelings. WEEKLY BOOKS This paper teen-movie has a universal force, enough thickness and troubled reliefs that we cannot sum it up to a summer romance. THE INROCKUPTIBLES
