Exit Wounds by Rutu Modan
Book DescriptionSet in modern-day Tel Aviv, "Exit Wounds" is the first graphic novel to be published in Britain by one of Israel's best-known cartoonists. A young man, Koby Franco, receives an urgent phone call from a female soldier. Learning that his estranged father may have been a victim of a suicide bombing in Hadera, Koby reluctantly joins the soldier in searching for clues. His death would certainly explain his empty apartment and disconnected phone line. As Koby tries to unravel the mystery of his father's death, he finds himself not only piecing together the last few months of his father's life, but his entire identity. With thin, precise lines and luscious watercolours, Modan creates a portrait of modern Israel, a place where sudden death mingles with the slow dissolution of family ties.
