Description - Monsieur Lambert by Anthea Bell

The fifth book by Jean-Jacques Sempe to be published in English by Phaidon, Monsieur Lambert is a gentle, sophisticated and unmistakably French illustrated story for adults. In this short graphic novel, Sempe shows us a glimpse of life in a small Parisian bistro. The restaurant and its regulars are vividly brought to life in a series of drawings which, together with the handwritten speech bubbles and laconic texts, display Sempe's usual unerring eye and ear for the telling details of human behaviour.

Buy Monsieur Lambert by Anthea Bell from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
