Joann Sfar Draws from Memory
Joann Sfar Draws from Memory follows one of the most celebrated graphic novelists of our time on a whimsical journey through the Algerian-Jewish heritage that inspires his work. Sfar is the award-winning author of The Rabbi’s Cat, Klezmer: Tales of the Wild East, and Little Vampire. We discover an obsessive chronicler of the past who is driven, at the same time, by a powerful curiosity about what will happen next. That curiosity, at the center of his creative process, yields a delightfully rambling brand of storytelling, blending memoir and philosophical musings with outrageous inventiveness, both on and off the page.
