The complexity of graphic novels originally attracted Sweeney after she shrugged off the comics genre as a child; reading text while looking at illustrations felt more like a chore than an enjoyable experience.
City of Glass: Graphic Novel
Summary: Paul Auster's City of Glass given the graphic novel treatment by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli in this reissue of their 1994 adaptation. It's the story of a crime novelist named Quinn, and what happens when he is mistaken for a private detective named Paul Auster. Quinn agrees to take on a case intended for Auster, one that leads him down the path of obsession, and one that causes him to cross paths with a novelist named Paul Auster.
Auster himself appears in the novel later, when Quinn goes in search of the detective whom the call was for. K&M have done him proud, making the author a handsome fellow with designer stubble. Quinn and Auster have a long (for a graphic novel) discussion about Don Quixote.
A graphic novel classic with a new introduction by Art SpiegelmanQuinn writes mysteries. The Washington Post has described him as a "post-existentialist private eye." An unknown voice on the telephone is now begging for his help, drawing him into a world and a mystery far stranger than any he ever created in print.Adapted by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, with graphics by David Mazzucchelli, Paul Auster's groundbreaking, Edgar Award-nominated masterwork has been astonishingly transformed into a new visual language."[This graphic novel] is, surprisingly, not just a worthy supplement to the novel, but a work of art that fully justifies its existence on its own terms."--The Guardian
Reviewing a graphic novel such as this without ruining it for new readers is a challenge. Happily, page four gives us a perfect encapsulation of the style, themes and techniques City of Glass employs.
