150 pages | first published 2002

David B.'s tribulations with his brother's epilepsy, the way in which the illness determined the author's artistic vocation, with, as a backdrop, a sharply delienated parade of the chimera of the 70s, from the promise of communal living to the infatuation with macrobiotics, all combine to make of this graphic novel one of the most distinctive autobiographical works of contemporary comics.
