Complex, powerful, and emotionally wrenching, not simple is a novel told in visual form by one of the most acclaimed creators at work today.

Reads R to L (Japanese Style). Ian, a young man with a fractured family history, travels from Australia to England to America in the hope of realizing his dreams and reuniting with his beloved sister. His story unfolds backwards through the framing narrative of Jim, a reporter driven to capture Ian’s experiences in a novel: not simple. A story within a story, a book within a book, a tale about the search for family, for an emotional home.

About the Author:

Natsume Ono made her professional debut in 2003 with the webcomic La Quinta Camera. Her next works, not simple and Ristorante Paradiso, met with both critical and popular acclaim. Her current series House of Five Leaves (Saraiya Goyou) is running in IKKI magazine, and Gente (a continuation of Ristorante Paradiso) appears in Erotics F magazine. She also creates doujinshi (independent comics) under the circle name basso. Her website, settantanove orsi, is at http://79orsi.web.fc2.com.

From Booklist:

Ian is on a quest to find his sister. As his travels across the U.S. take their emotional toll, he is joined by a reporter who faithfully records the teen’s struggles to find his family, planning to turn the hard-to-believe but true story into a novel. Ono’s powerful book has little in common with what many people think of as manga. Her almost-cartoonish character designs do feature gigantic eyes, but by stripping bare her art and using only the simplest of lines, she allows the full emotional impact of her story to punch readers full force. There are weighty issues at work here—incest, abusive families, alcoholism, child prostitution, disease, death—but Ono never goes for graphic details. She allows the story to unfold in a random manner, flipping back and forth in time, that is all the more effective for its subtlety. Readers may need some patience getting through this, but those looking for harsh tales of real life will be rewarded for their time. Pair with Adam Rapp’s Punkzilla (2009) for booktalking or book clubs. Grades 10-12. --Snow Wildsmith
