Blossoms in Autumn [9781910593622]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Ulysses is a 59-year-old widower who, since retiring, has been in the grip of loneliness. The former moving man is without direction or purpose. He can't even find solace in the company of his children: his daughter is dead, his son consumed by work. Mrs. Solenza is a 62-year-old former model. Once a magazine cover star, she now runs the family business: a cheese shop owned by her late mother. She, too, is alone. Two lives drift sadly by, inching ever closer to old age. Until, one day, they collide-and an emotional earthquake happens. A unique collaboration between veteran comics writer Zidrou and rising star Aimee de Jongh, Blossoms in Autumn is a masterful exploration of growing old and falling in love.
AUTHOR: Aimee de Jongh is an award-winning animator, comics artist and illustrator from the Netherlands. She published her first comic at 17, before studying animation. She has since created work for children's books, TV shows, music videos, and art installations, as well as for numerous comic book series. Her animated film Aurora was screened widely in the Netherlands, and Janus, a video installation she created with the L.A.-based artist Miljohn Ruperto, was exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The Return of the Honey Buzzard, her first graphic novel, won the Prix Saint-Michel. Zidrou (Benoit Drousie) is a Belgian comics writer. A former teacher, he began writing comics in the early 1990s. He has been a regular contributor to the European comics magazine Spirou and is the author of numerous children's books and adult graphic novels. Born in Brussels, he now lives in Spain.
