I Remember Beirut


This is a stunning black and white graphic memoir, narrated using a technique similar to Georges Perec’s  ‘I Remember’ that captures something of the horror, humour and sheer weirdness of growing up in the divided city of Beirut in the 1980s From bad ’80s haircuts to watching Transformers on TV, from her mother’s blown-out windshield, to her little brother’s shrapnel collection, the author’s memories form a picture both familiar and startling to young readers lucky enough to grow up without civil war on their doorstep. 10+
