But I Really Wanted To Be An Anthropologist…

May 7th, 2013






Writer and Artist: Margaux Motin.

Reviewer: Steve.

The reviews I’d seen had cited Jules Feiffer, and there’s something of him in the drawing style, with its fluid lines and nicely observed body language. But the subject is not socio-political commentary, rather short, mildly humorous vignettes from the author’s life: a bit like Lewis Trondheim’s “Little Nothings”, without the anthropomorphic animals and with an added infusion of designer shoes.

If the translation is accurate, it may also disillusion those who (like me) imagined that French as a naturally less foul-mouthed language than English.
