A simple book, and one of contrasts. Thick, stocky figures with wide-set eyes are drawn by lithe, delicate linework; cramped internal scenes, bustling with small details, give way to vast, spartan exterior shots; and the innocence of childhood is placed against the twin specters of work and responsibility. There is nothing revolutionary in Saturn Apartments, but it remains a joy to read.
