A graphic novel for the twenty-first-century featuring tales of tortured souls and tormented passion—brilliantly etched in words and striking visuals Some people fall in love, get married, and thrive in happy relationships—and then there are others. From Israeli enfant terrible Koren Shadmi comes a wickedly literate, darkly poetic, beautifully illustrated story collection that exposes with nightmarish clarity the sorrows of love and desire. Read in these pages such tales as:Satisfaction Av.: The terrifying depths to which an unloved child once sank return to haunt her.Radioactive Girlfriend: A student embarks on a torrid love affair with a young woman whose powerful allure is literally nuclear. Pastry Paradise: A near-death experience takes away a woman's will to live and love…but awakens in her a dark and insatiable appetite.Antoinette: A young man becomes obsessed with the girl of his dreams: a gorgeous—but headless—sylph. …and another six tales of alienation and angst.With brutal strokes and lacerating wit, Shadmi introduces a haunting gallery of lost souls that will both repel and captivate.


“Shadmi's art is expressive and simple…but it's his sharp writing (shades of Etgar Keret's violent whimsy) that really brings this collection together.” —Publishers Weekly“Good stuff, especially if you like Kafka or comics creators Rutu Modan and Mark Murphy.”—Booklist
