The National Book Awards are a set of annual U.S. literary awards. At the final “National Book Awards Ceremony” every November, the National Book Foundation presents the NBAs and two lifetime achievement awards.
One of 2015’s best graphic novels for adults. The antithesis to the usual line up of steroid pumped heroes, hardened zombies, and soft porn. This is the window into a woman’s life at a most critical juncture, a metaphysical breakdown. Lulu leaves her family one day for a job interview in another town and does not return. Instead she wanders the beach, aimlessly, and without purpose. What is motivating her, what she finds, who she impacts, and the twist of a resolution makes for a refreshing unexpected tale of middle age.
