Each week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue. This week it’s the turn of The Boy Who Made Silence.
Deaf child Nestor Gudfred inexplicably creates utter silence around him, which compels the people near him into each other’s pasts and memories.
As his religious rural community looks to him as a prophet, the story follows Nestor and a diverse cast of richly imagined characters as he comes of age, falls in love, and begins a search for his father.
Winner of the coveted Xeric Grant.
