A stunning new graphic novel about dance by a brilliant young French author—absorbing and thrillingly minimalistic

As a very young girl, Polina Oulinov is taken on as a special pupil by the famous ballet teacher Professor Bojinsky. He is very demanding and refuses to adapt his standards to the talents of his pupils, and Polina has to work hard and make great sacrifices in order to reach the level Bojinsky senses she has the talent for. When she graduates and is admitted to the official theater school, she discovers that Bojinsky’s view of ballet is only one of many and that she can’t adapt to new rules, new visions. She flees Russia for Berlin, where she meets a group of drama students. Together they create a new form of theater—and conquer the world. Brilliantly drawn, this moving and intimate story of self-discovery confirms Bastien Vivès as one of the most exciting talents at work in the graphic novel field today.

About the Author:

Bastien Vivès is a graphic novelist and illustrator. His graphic novels include The Butcher, Hollywood in January, and A Taste of Chlorine, which won the "Essential Revelation" prize at the Angouleme Festival in 2009.

Review:

"If Polina were a novel it would be a worldwide hit, and doubtless made into a must-see movie version. It is profound, amusing at times, light-hearted but never bland. It's one of the best literary comics I've read in a long time." --Wim, Forbidden Planet Blog
