Description 1 online resource (548 unnumbered pages) : chiefly illustrations
Summary After years of acclaim in Europe, graphic novelist Ludovic Debeurme makes his English-language debut with a book of quiet grace and staggering emotional power. This rich and intimate story follows two teenagers, Lucille and Arthur, as they struggle with the complex legacies inherited from their families: legacies of illness and pride, of despair and hope. Somehow two lonely misfits form an instant connection, and with the intoxicating boldness of youth, they journey together across Europe, discovering each other, discovering themselves, and hoping against all odds to make their own destiny. Lucille is more than a story about anorexia, alcoholism, and adolescence. It's a story of love amidst tragedy, full of the halting awkwardness of life and the operatic grandeur of teenage emotion
