Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A graphic account of an Israeli soldier's experiences in Beirut during the massacres at Sabra and Shatila follows his recovered memories of his participation in the September 1982 atrocities after having forgotten them for more than twenty years. Simultaneous. 30,000 first printing.


Review:

"A potent and profound document of war and its aftermath done as a cartoon...hallucinatory brilliance in the service of understandingthe psychic damage of war." (Describing the film.)

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 01/22/2009

Review:

"Utilizing frames that seem cut straight from the film, the book threads together Polonksy's darkly gleaming nightmare drawings into a seamless whole."

Publishers Weekly, 02/09/2009

Book Description: Henry Holt Company Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Us. 272 x 182 mm. Brand New Book. Special, strange, and peculiarly potent. Extraordinary. -- Variety One night in Beirut in September 1982, while Israeli soldiers secured the area, Christian militia members entered the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila and began to massacre hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinians. Ari Folman was one of those Israeli soldiers, but for more than twenty years he remembered nothing of that night or of the weeks leading up to it. Then came a friend s disturbing dream, and with it Folman s need to excavate the truth of the war in Lebanon and answer the crucial question: what was he doing during the hours of slaughter? Challenging the collective amnesia of friends and fellow soldiers, Folman painfully, candidly pieces together the war and his place in it. Gradually, the blankness of his mind is filled in by scenes of combat and patrol, misery and carnage, as well as dreams and hallucinations. Soldiers are haunted by inexplicable nightmares and flashbacks--snapping, growling dogs with teeth bared and eyes glowing orange; a recurring image of three young men rising naked out of the sea to drift into the Beirut battlefield. Tanks crush cars and buildings with lethal indifference; snipers pick off men on donkeys, men in cars, men drinking coffee; a soldier waltzes through a storm of bullets; rock songs fill the air, and then yellow flares. The recollections accumulate until Ari Folman arrives at Sabra and Shatila and his investigation reaches its terrible end. The result is a gripping reconstruction, a probing inquiry into the unreliable quality of memory, and, above all, a powerful denunciation of the senselessness of all wars. Profoundly original in form and approach, Waltz with Bashir will take its place as one of the great works of wartime testimony. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780805088922
