A Game for Swallows: To Die, To Live, To Return by Zeina Abirached
A Game for Swallows: To Die, to Leave, to Return (Single Titles) - Zeina Abirached

In ways that traditional books cannot, graphic novels seem to have the ability to express difficult things so that they cannot be dismissed. This book brings to life the realities of war from the eyes of a child, so in many ways it is simple and straightforward. It's just one day, just one room, and yet the fear and anxiety are clear. I have seen comparisons to other award-winning graphic novels, and while I think those comparisons are fair, Abirached still has her own story to tell. I found this to be powerful and moving. Recommended.

I Remember Beirut
I Remember Beirut - Zeina Abirached Unfortunately, this was not what I was expecting when I requested this title. It felt like each sentence started with "I remember...." I thought this would be a gripping graphic novel about what happens to children during time of war. Even though this was a short graphic novel, I was really bored and gave up about 60% in :/

A Game for Swallows: To Die, to Leave, to Return (Single Titles)
A Game for Swallows: To Die, to Leave, to Return (Single Titles) - Zeina Abirached Another remarkable graphic memoir. In this French import, the civil war in Lebanon in the 1980s is seen through the eyes of a child. The black-and-white illustrations are reminiscent of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis.
