(W) Marcello Quintanilha (A/CA) Marcello Quintanilha
A gripping story about a family pushed to the brink.
This English language debut was the 2022 "Fauve d'Or"
winner at the 2022 Angoulême Comics Festival.
Márcia is a nurse in a hospital near Rio and lives in a favela with her boyfriend, Aluisio, and her daughter, Jaqueline, whom she had very young with another man. Jaqueline, a troubled young adult, makes life difficult for her mother and Aluisio and rebelliously hangs out with members of a neighborhood gang, leading to violent altercations between mother and daughter. The situation degenerates even more when Jaqueline is arrested. Márcia and Aluisio, distraught, realize that Jaqueline is in deeper trouble than they ever thought. Marcello Quintanilha's first English-language graphic novel is a tour de force - a tightly wound drama filled with masterful suspense and a deep love for family and character. Marcello Quintanilha was born in 1971 outside Rio de Janeiro.
