Thought-provoking graphic novel
on 30 January 2016
A friend of mine turned me on to this as he read it as inspiration for an operatic work he's writing. I got it as a gift for my partner who loves WWII stuff, loves post-apocalyptic stories and loves David Bowie (who provided music for the cartoon). The story is grim, yet moving and thought-provoking and showed me a side to Raymond Briggs that I never dreamt existed.
