I enjoy reading biographies presented as graphic “novels”.
At the end of 2018, I read
I really didn’t know much about the life of the famous French author Colette (1873-1954). The Provocative Colette (128 pages, published on 9/15/2018) made me discover what a wild woman she was for her time! The book focuses more on the first years of her becoming a respected author.
The illustrations were not bad, with a flavor of Belle Époque, the years mostly featured in the book.
The book ends with a chronology of her life, and a list of people in her life, with a few words on each.
I was amazed however, by the stunning art in Che: A Revolutionary Life (421 pages, published on 11/13/2018).
Very atmospheric, extremely precise and well done. You can see the first pages here. Even though I was fascinated by this man when I was a teen, I have never taken time to read in detail about him. This was a nice eye-opener on what the US have been doing in South America.
If you want to know more about Che Guevara (1928-1967), I highly recommend this book. Sad and powerful.
