<b>Named a Best Book of 2018 by the <i>Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Time </i>(Honorable Mention), <i>Library Journal </i>(Best Graphic Novels), <i>The New York Times Critics,</i> and NPR</b><BR> <BR><b>A revelatory, visually stunning graphic memoir by award-winning artist Nora Krug, telling the story of her attempt to confront the hidden truths of her family’s wartime past in Nazi Germany and to comprehend the forces that have shaped her life, her generation, and history.</b><BR><BR>Nora Krug was born decades after the fall of the Nazi regime, but the Second World War cast a long shadow throughout her childhood and youth in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. For Nora, the simple fact of her German citizenship bound her to the Holocaust and its unspeakable atrocities and left her without a sense of cultural belonging. Yet Nora knew little about her own family’s involvement in the war: though all four grandparents lived through the war, they never spoke of it.<BR> <BR>In her late thirties, after twelve years in the US, Krug realizes that living abroad has only intensified her need to ask the questions she didn’t dare to as a child and young adult. Returning to Germany, she visits archives, conducts research, and interviews family members, uncovering in the process the stories of her maternal grandfather, a driving teacher in Karlsruhe during the war, and her father’s brother Franz-Karl, who died as a teenage SS soldier in Italy. Her extraordinary quest, spanning continents and generations, pieces together her family’s troubling story and reflects on what it means to be a German of her generation.<BR> <BR><i>Belonging</i> wrestles with the idea of <i>Heimat</i>, the German word for the place that first forms us, where the sensibilities and identity of one generation pass on to the next. In this highly inventive visual memoir—equal parts graphic novel, family scrapbook, and investigative narrative—Nora Krug draws on letters, archival material, flea market finds, and photographs to attempt to understand what it means to belong to one’s country and one’s family. A wholly original record of a German woman’s struggle with the weight of catastrophic history, <i>Belonging </i>is also a reflection on the responsibility that we all have as inheritors of our countries’ pasts.

A timeless story rediscovered by each new generation, <i>The Diary of a Young Girl </i>stands without peer. For both young readers and adults it continues to capture the remarkable spirit of Anne Frank, who for a time survived the worst horror the modern world has seen—and who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal.<br />  <br /> Adapted by Ari Folman, illustrated by David Polonsky, and authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel, this is the first graphic edition of <i>The Diary </i>and includes extensive quotation directly from the definitive edition. It remains faithful to the original, while the stunning illustrations interpret and add layers of visual meaning and immediacy to this classic work of Holocaust literature.

<b>Best Graphic Novels of the Year--<i>Forbes</i></b><br /><b><b><br /></b>For <i>Persepolis</i> and <i>Logicomix</i> fans, a <i>New Yorker</i> cartoonist's page-turning graphic biography of the fascinating Hannah Arendt, </b><b>the most prominent philosopher of the twentieth century</b><b>.</b><br /> <br />One of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century and a hero of political thought, the largely unsung and often misunderstood Hannah Arendt is best known for her landmark 1951 book on openness in political life,<i> The Origins of Totalitarianism</i>, which, with its powerful and timely lessons for today, has become newly relevant. <br /> <br /> She led an extraordinary life. This was a woman who endured Nazi persecution firsthand, survived harrowing "escapes" from country to country in Europe, and befriended such luminaries as Walter Benjamin and Mary McCarthy, in a world inhabited by everyone from Marc Chagall and Marlene Dietrich to Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud. A woman who finally had to give up her unique genius for philosophy, and her love of a very compromised man--the philosopher and Nazi-sympathizer Martin Heidegger--for what she called "love of the world."<br /> <br /> Compassionate and enlightening, playful and page-turning,<i> New Yorker </i>cartoonist Ken Krimstein's<i> The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt </i>is a strikingly illustrated portrait of a complex, controversial, deeply flawed, and irrefutably courageous woman whose intelligence and "virulent truth telling" led her to breathtaking insights into the human condition, and whose experience continues to shine a light on how to live as an individual and a public citizen in troubled times.

The unthinkable has happened to the city of San Diego, California: a huge earthquake has sank much of the city beneath the ocean. Arthur Curry, the Atlantean hero known to surface-dwellers as Aquaman, comes to search for survivors, but there are none to be found. It’s a tragedy beyond comprehension. But suddenly, survivors begin emerging from the sunken city...and drowning on dry land! There are survivors, hundreds or thousands of them, but they’ve been changed, robbed of their ability to breathe air. Now, the citizens “Sub Diego” must find a way to rebuild in a world that’s completely alien to them. It’s up to Aquaman, the only man who belongs to both the surface world and the ocean to help them… and track down those responsible for the city’s grim transformation! This classic Aquaman story from writer Will Pfeifer (TEEN TITANS) and artist Patrick Gleason (BATMAN & ROBIN) is collected here for the first time ever! Collects AQUAMAN #15-22.

<p><strong>Whether you are looking to brush up or sample for the first time, this graphic adaptation of <em>In Search of Lost Time</em> is the perfect introduction to Proust's masterpiece.</strong></p><br /><p>"Proust was the greatest novelist of the twentieth century, just as Tolstoy was in the nineteenth," wrote Graham Greene. "For those who began to write at the end of the twenties or the beginning of the thirties, there were two great inescapable influences: Proust and Freud, who are mutually complementary." With its sweeping digressions into the past and reflections on the nature of memory, Proust's oceanic novel <em>In Search of Lost Time</em> looms over twentieth-century literature as one of the greatest, yet most endlessly challenging literary experiences. Influencing writers like Virginia Woolf and James Joyce, and even anticipating Albert Einstein in its philosophical explorations of space and time, <em>In Search of Lost Time</em> is a monumental achievement and a virtual rite of passage for any serious lover of literature.</p><br /><p>Now, in what renowned translator Arthur Goldhammer says might be "likened to a piano reduction of an orchestral score," the French illustrator Stéphane Heuet re-presents Proust in graphic form for anyone who has always dreamed of reading him but was put off by the sheer magnitude of the undertaking. This graphic adaptation reveals the fundamental architecture of Proust’s work while displaying a remarkable fidelity to his language as well as the novel's themes of time, art, and the elusiveness of memory. As Goldhammer writes in his introduction, the compression required by this kind of adaptation As Goldhammer writes in his introduction, "the reader new to Proust must attend closely, even in this compressed rendering, to the novel's circling rhythms and abrupt cross-cuts between different places and times. But this necessary attentiveness is abetted and facilitated by the compactness of the graphic format.”</p><br /><p>In this first volume, <em>Swann's Way</em>, the narrator Marcel, an aspiring writer, recalls his childhood when—in a now immortal moment in literature—the taste of a madeleine cake dipped in tea unleashes a torrent of memories about his family’s country home in the town of Combray. Here, Heuet and Goldhammer use Proust's own famously rich and labyrinthine sentences and discerning observations to render Combray like never before. From the water lillies of the Vivonne to the steeple and stained glass of the town church, Proust's language provides the blueprint for Heuet's illustrations. Heuet and Goldhammer also capture Proust's humor, wit, and sometimes scathing portrayals of Combray's many memorable inhabitants, like the lovelorn Charles Swann and the object of his affection and torment, Odette de Crécy; Swann's daughter Gilberte; local aristocrat the Duchesse de Guermantes; the narrator's uncle Adolphe; and the hypochondriac Aunt Léonie.</p><br /><p>Including a Proust family tree, a glossary of terms, and a map of Paris, this graphic adaptation is a surprising and useful companion piece to Proust’s masterpiece for both the initiated and those seeking an introduction.</p>
