The incredible LUCILLE by Ludovic Debeurme hits stores. In the tradition of BLANKETS, ESSEX COUNTY, and SWALLOW ME WHOLE comes the next literary masterpiece from Top Shelf Productions: LUCILLE by Ludovic Debeurme.

Description:
Originally published in France to overwhelming critical acclaim, including the René Goscinny Prize and the Angoulême Essential Award, LUCILLE is the English-languge debut for Ludovic Debeurme, a young master of cartooning. It’s a love story full of tragedy and hope, following two teenagers who cling to each other amid illness and grief. Arthur is suffocating under the painful legacy of his alcoholic father, but when he encounters shy Lucille in a treatment center for anorexia, they form an instant connection and set off for a journey across Europe, hoping against all odds to make their own destiny.

Review:
Stunning seems to be an odd word for the simple artwork. The story is captivating. Penned by French auteur Ludovic Debeurme, this rich story follows two teenagers journey through life. The metaphor of the journey crosses Europe to discover themselves. Thoroughly modern teenagers struggling with social pressures, old world parents, mysticism, displacement, alcoholism, and anorexia these two characters are strikingly specific yet work as emblems of a generation. Debeurme’s English language debut has already won the Goscinny Prize and the Angoulême Essential Award.
