Sabrina By Drnaso, Nick Book - 2018 | First edition

This won the Man Booker Prize, and was on the long list of titles for our Howard County Reads. I loved the story and the pacing and the intensity of the book. The story is a long question about grief and murder in today's conspiracy driven society. The art was lackluster. Too cartoony so I lost a lot with the too basic illustrations and static panels. That said, the layout of the panels, and how the author uses them was absolutely genius. It builds horror and suspense and a deep emotional tie to the story. It really is something just a little different in the graphic novel medium, and well worth reading.
