The acclaimed series from Drawn & Quarterly is finally a graphic novel.

An alumnus of Art Spiegelman`s RAW and one of France’s most exciting talents, Baru has created with twitchy, nervous lines and washes of pale color the tense, sun bleached atmosphere of colonial Algeria in the 1950s. Together two Arab brothers wander the narrow streets of the capital. Tearing the family apart with their loyalties and ambitions, one brother goes underground and joins the fight for his country’s freedom from French rule. The other brother takes to the boxing ring and makes a career of fighting with his fists that will make him a European sensation. A graphic novel with cinematic sweep and richly expressive art, the story explodes with the force of a punching fist or a car bomb.
