Epileptic PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Epileptic free pdf The most acclaimed European graphic novel of the last ten years, "Epileptic" is David B.'s story of his brother's battle with epilepsy - but it turns into a penetrating and sometimes lacerating self- examination on the author's part, as he delves into his own complex emotions and his family's troubled history, as well as his own youthful fantasy life. Particularly pointed is his description of the family journey from one attempted cure to another, including acupuncture, spiritualism and macrobiotics. David B.'s drawing is utterly extraordinary, balancing literal representation and expressionist psychological distortion.
