Book Review – The Property

The Property book coverThe Property by Rutu Modan, translated by Jessica Cohen

Using a simple but beautiful art style, Rutu Modan tells the story of Regina Segal and her granddaughter Mica, who travel from Israel to Warsaw, Poland in an effort to reclaim a family property lost during World War II. The story evolves into a tale of family secrets and how the past can haunt. The prose is sharp and complements the art. Overall, a very good graphic novel.
