About the Author
Born in Tel Aviv in 1966, Rutu Modan is an illustrator and cartoonist. She cofounded an independent publishing house for alternative comic artists, Actus Tragicus, and has received much recognition for her work, both within Israel and abroad, including nominations for Eisner, Ignatz, and Angoulême awards. Modan has taught comics and illustration at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, and currently lives in England with her family.

"Modan is masterful at creating complex motivations, exploring the confusion her characters create in each other and, more fundamentally, in themselves." --Los Angeles Times

"My comic book of the year, by a mile, is Rutu Modan's The Property... in which Mica Segal, a young Israeli woman, travels to Warsaw with her irascible grandmother to help her reclaim the apartment building she and her family were forced to give up in 1940...This, believe me, has everything you could possibly want in a comic: great pictures, a multilayered story, mystery, sharp wit." --The Guardian's Graphic Books of the Year

"What The Property most resembles is an excellent independent film, full of nuanced performances and funny lines... Modan's artwork is lovely and understated; it's the cleverness of her storytelling that shines brightest here."'s Unforgettable Graphic Novels of 2013

"Modan's clear line art delineates the complex web of loves, lies, and invented pasts. This beautifully realized narrative shows how history shapes us but cannot destroy us." --Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2013
