About the Author

Lorenzo Mattotti is a highly sought-after illustrator ( with frequent appearances in and on The New Yorker) and acclaimed graphic novelist. He lives in Paris, France; his work includes The Raven, a collaboration with Lou Reed re-imagining the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Jerry Kramsky, aka Fabrizio Ostani, is an Italian comic book writer whose previous collaboration with Mattotti won the 2003 Eisner Award for Best U.S. Edition of Foreign Material.

Reviews

The loose, stream-of-consciousness narrative showcases Mattotti's flowing, delicate black-and-white art and the endlessly imaginative settings. His world is developed with clarity, originality, and a touch of poetry.
Garlandia's art is so virtuosic, so gorgeously replete, it almost doesn't matter what the book is about. Its inexorable momentum is entirely visual. Things like character motivations and plotting merely provide a frail scaffolding for page after page of billowing, ecstatic linework.
