This week I read A Drifting Life by Yoshihiro Tatsumi and The Matisse Stories by A.S. Byatt.
I have been reading graphic novels but not Manga yet. Just found a list of Grown-Up Manga and will venture to some comix stores to learn more. We have a great starter selection in the Art Institute of Austin Library, where chatting and lounging is encouraged. I love to take my students there on visual treasure hunts, then discuss the elements in the drawings students find to encourage them to try new things.
