La Perdida

by: Jessica Abel

Publisher: Random House Books (2006)

$19.95

Staff Pick by comrade: JP

This beautiful and haunting graphic novel is hard to forget. Abels visual depictions of Mexico City are fantastic and are complemented well by her liberal use of DF slang. The protagonist is funny, at times frustrating and overall effective in making me question my own pretentions and motivations in life.
