Description

In this long form graphic memoir, Gipi alternates between expressive pen & ink comic journals and slightly more formal watercolored panel comics, all are beautifully rendered.

From the publisher:

With S, Gipi told a beautiful story based on the memory of his recently-deceased father. He continues in this autobiographical vein with Ma Vie Mal Dessinee (My Ill-Conceived Life), digging even deeper into the author's heart and soul. Speaking directly to his readers, Gipi shares everything with us: his fears, his illnesses, his sufferings, his inhibitions, his descent into hell; but also his friendships, his reflections, his happiness.

There is no pathos in this book, no self-pity, no attempt at hagiography. It's a rich book in which apparent digressions reveal a narrative sense remarkable in every respect. A powerful book, rebellious, crazy and graceful, not lacking humor and sarcasm.
