Excellent graphic novel. The meeting of Vargas' twisted, yet endearing storytelling with a dark, hard edges graphic style worked. Both artists gave their best and the result was a dark, yet tender tale of murder, insanity and family. The most striking images for me were of the father's "quatre fleuves" sculpture. The father working daily on this work of recycling art, his whole family (4 sons) working to keep him, I guess, sane in a hard world. I loved this. It's a quick read but a powerful one. Adamsberg figures things out in his slow and unassuming way.
