From the Publisher:
Winner of a Harvey Award for Best Foreign Material, this compelling story is set in 1950s Algeria during that country's long and bloody struggle to free itself from French colonial rule. Cartoonist Baru documents an impoverished boxer's turbulent rise to fame amidst the chaos surrounding him and his family, from the slums of his hometown in Algeria to the bright lights of Paris.
"...drawn in a fluid line and brush by Baru, a master of the French bande desinée." - The Washington Square News
