I spy

You know you’ve met someone very special when you find Art Speigelman’s Maus and Joe Sacco’s Gaza 1956, en marge de l’Histoire (published as Footnotes in Gaza in English) and the Palestine collection keeping each other company on the same shelf.

And then you see that one of their favourite books, copiously annotated, is Nicolas Bouvier’s L’Usage du monde (translated into English as The Way of the World).

Of course I was going to feel completely at home here!
