One of the most beautifully rendered (in colored pencils!) graphic novels I’ve read, this quiet story about living with a sensitivity to the radioactivity of modern life is a haunting warning.

Very minimalist but brightly coloured in coloured pencil (aside for one section done in just regular pencil). The narrator is not feeling at all well and comes to decide that it's because she is sensitive to electrical fields. She spends time in the natural world but separated from others and the only way to keep in touch is to use said fields.

It's told in diary form and certainly makes you appreciate and hate isolation at varying points. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole electromagnetic sensitivity thing (I really haven't heard anything one way or the other about it) so that at least made it an interesting read. I really enjoyed the art a lot more, however.

Delightful coloured pencil (and watercolour) drawings; handwritten cursive script; touching story.

Note" a 4-page spread in the "April/Jura" section is loose, not bound.
