I just finished Craig Thompson's graphic novel. What a gorgeous book, and perfect for the cool weather we've been having.
I highly recommend it.
It's a story of first love, alienation and the general beauty and difficulty of growing up.
The book won TONS of awards but thats not important, what is important of course is that I like it, so go get a copy and read it now and tell me how much you loved it, and visit the author's website;
