Product Description

Review

"Based on a large and eclectic corpus, Elisabeth El Refaie's study questions autobiographical comics in the light of narrative, literary, media and cultural theories. She accumulates penetrating clarifications on the socio-cultural models involved and on specific questions such as embodiment or the relationship to the mirror, to authenticity, to self-deprecation and even to abjection. The phenomenon of life writing in pictures is now provided with a complete theoretical framework."

--Thierry Groensteen, author of "La bande dessinee: Une litterature graphique, La construction de la cage," and "The System of Comics""

Format: Kindle Edition
Agree with other reviewer that this is a really interesting book - can't understand how someone can dismiss it without reading it, just based on the preview. It's written in an accessible way without being trashy, and is definitely of interest to anyone interested in graphical novels from a more analytical and philosophical angle.
