Exquisite Corpse - A literary graphic novel

Idgie Says:


I received this graphic novel and started reading it immediately, ignoring the rest of  my pile. 


Took it with me to the bath and realized an hour later that the book was finished and I was in cold water. This is a  fantastic story about publishing, author's and their egos and getting even.

The plot twists in this little graphic novel are laugh out loud.  It definitely helps you to enjoy the humor if you're familiar with the publishing industry and authors/editors in general. 

Originally published in France, I'm so glad it's making it's way to our shores. 

I highly recommend you pick a copy up and prepare to forget what you're doing while you read and snicker at the same time.

Book Description:
Zoe isn't exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn't recognize world-famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment . . . and into his life.

Zoe doesn't know Balzac from Batman, but she's going to have to wise up fast . . . because Rocher has a terrible secret, and now Zoe is sitting on the literary scandal of the century.
