Jamilti and Other Stories Hardcover

Rutu Modan
Rutu Modan

Jamilti and Other Stories is the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to Exit Wounds (one of 2007’s most acclaimed graphic novels), and it collects Israeli cartoonist Rutu Modan’s short works, written and drawn over the past 5 years, that lead the reader through unexpected turns of plot and unusual character portraits.

Some are darkly fantastical and unsettling, such as the unravelling of a serial-killer murder mystery, or her accounts of an infatuated plastic surgeon and his sanatorium. Others are more attuned to the surprising discoveries that shape personal identity, as in the story of a tragic past that lies within a family’s theme hotel, or that of a struggling musician who hopes an upcoming gig will be his big break. In “Jamilti,” Modan addresses political violence with a suicide bombing that shakes up a day in the lives of a young couple.
