"A dark, menacingly brilliant tale, tinged with the erotic." â€• LA Times. Spanning multiple decades and continents, this phantasmagorical epic is the result of a unique collaboration between an award-winning American author and the famous French illustrator of Face de Lune.
Writer Jerome Charyn and artist FranÃ§ois Boucq combine their talents to recount a surrealistic tale about the wife of a philandering magician and her struggles with terrifying demons, both real and imaginary. Originally published as La Femme du magicien,The Magician's Wife was awarded the 1986 Prix Alfred (AngoulÃªme) and the Grand Prix (Sierre).
The English-language version has been out of print for three decades, during which time the graphic novel has developed a cult following. "The story and the art are both eerie and erotic," declared Publishers Weekly upon the book's initial publication, and this new edition promises to mesmerize a new generation of readers.
