Fiona recently gave me the graphic novel French Milk by Lucy Knisley as a birthday gift – it was the first graphic novel I’ve read and I really really loved it. It’s an illustrated diary-account of a 6 week trip to Paris that Lucy took with her mother. I didn’t start it until I was back from my Easter break to Sicily, but it would have made perfect holiday reading – light and funny; more gripping than a glossy magazine, without being as taxing on the brain as some of the literary greats. In some ways, it reminded me of reading a really good blog.
Relish (by the same author) was recently published and I’m looking forward to reading it.
I’m also on the hunt for other graphic novels. Do you have any recommendations for me?
